\fBmenu\fR - curses extension for programming menus
@@ -39,25 +39,25 @@ The \fBmenu\fR library provides terminal-independent facilities for composing
menu systems on character-cell terminals. The library includes: item routines,
which create and modify menu items; and menu routines, which group items into
menus, display menus on the screen, and handle interaction with the user.
-
+.PP
The \fBmenu\fR library uses the \fBcurses\fR libraries, and a curses
initialization routine such as \fBinitscr\fR must be called before using any of
these functions. To use the \fBmenu\fR library, link with the options
\fB-lmenu -lcurses\fR.

.SS Current Default Values for Item Attributes
-
+.
The \fBmenu\fR library maintains a default value for item attributes. You can
get or set this default by calling the appropriate \fBget_\fR or \fBset_\fR
routine with a \fBNULL\fR item pointer. Changing this default with a
\fBset_\fR function affects future item creations, but does not change the
rendering of items already created.
