-<H2>DESCRIPTION</H2><PRE>
- The function <STRONG>new_fieldtype</STRONG> creates a new field type usable
- for data validation. You supply it with <EM>field</EM><STRONG>_</STRONG><EM>check</EM>, a
- predicate to check the validity of an entered data string
- whenever the user attempts to leave a field. The (FIELD
- *) argument is passed in so the validation predicate can
- see the field's buffer, sizes and other attributes; the
- second argument is an argument-block structure, about
- which more below.
-
- You also supply <STRONG>new_fieldtype</STRONG> with <EM>char</EM><STRONG>_</STRONG><EM>check</EM>, a function
- to validate input characters as they are entered; it will
- be passed the character to be checked and a pointer to an
- argument-block structure.
-
- The function <STRONG>free_fieldtype</STRONG> frees the space allocated for
- a given validation type.
-
- The function <STRONG>set_fieldtype_arg</STRONG> associates three storage-
- management functions with a field type. The <EM>make</EM><STRONG>_</STRONG><EM>arg</EM>
- function is automatically applied to the list of arguments
- you give <STRONG>set_field_type</STRONG> when attaching validation to a
- field; its job is to bundle these into an allocated argu-
- ment-block object which can later be passed to validation
- predicated. The other two hook arguments should copy and
- free argument-block structures. They will be used by the
- forms-driver code. You must supply the <EM>make</EM><STRONG>_</STRONG><EM>arg</EM> function,
- the other two are optional, you may supply NULL for them.
- In this case it is assumed that <EM>make</EM><STRONG>_</STRONG><EM>arg</EM> does not allocate
- memory but simply loads the argument into a single scalar
