-<H2>DESCRIPTION</H2><PRE>
- This is an extension to the curses library. It provides
- callers with a hook into the <STRONG>ncurses</STRONG> data to resize win-
- dows, primarily for use by programs running in an X Window
- terminal (e.g., xterm). The function <STRONG>resizeterm</STRONG> resizes
- the standard and current windows to the specified dimen-
- sions, and adjusts other bookkeeping data used by the
- <STRONG>ncurses</STRONG> library that record the window dimensions such as
- the <STRONG>LINES</STRONG> and <STRONG>COLS</STRONG> variables.
-
- Most of the work is done by the inner function
- <STRONG>resize_term</STRONG>. The outer function <STRONG>resizeterm</STRONG> adds bookkeep-
- ing for the SIGWINCH handler. When resizing the windows,
- <STRONG>resize_term</STRONG> blank-fills the areas that are extended. The
- calling application should fill in these areas with appro-
- priate data. The <STRONG>resize_term</STRONG> function attempts to resize
- all windows. However, due to the calling convention of
- pads, it is not possible to resize these without addi-
- tional interaction with the application.
-
- A support function <STRONG>is_term_resized</STRONG> is provided so that
- applications can check if the <STRONG>resize_term</STRONG> function would
- modify the window structures. It returns TRUE if the win-
- dows would be modified, and FALSE otherwise.

- Except as noted, these functions return the integer <STRONG>ERR</STRONG>

- of the dimensions are less than or equal to zero, or if an
- error occurs while (re)allocating memory for the windows.

-<H2>NOTES</H2><PRE>
- While these functions are intended to be used to support a
- signal handler (i.e., for SIGWINCH), care should be taken
- to avoid invoking them in a context where <STRONG>malloc</STRONG> or <STRONG>real-</STRONG>
- <STRONG>loc</STRONG> may have been interrupted, since it uses those func-
- tions.
-
- If ncurses is configured to supply its own SIGWINCH han-
- dler, the <STRONG>resizeterm</STRONG> function <STRONG>ungetch</STRONG>'s a <STRONG>KEY_RESIZE</STRONG> which
- will be read on the next call to <STRONG>getch</STRONG>. This is used to
- alert an application that the screen size has changed, and
- that it should repaint special features such as pads that
- cannot be done automatically.
-
- If the environment variables <STRONG>LINES</STRONG> or <STRONG>COLUMNS</STRONG> are set,
- this overrides the library's use of the window size
- obtained from the operating system. Thus, even if a SIG-
- WINCH is received, no screen size change may be recorded.

+ The <STRONG>resize_term</STRONG> function attempts to resize all windows. However, due
+ to the calling convention of pads, it is not possible to resize these
+ without additional interaction with the application.
+
+ When resizing windows, <STRONG>resize_term</STRONG> recursively adjusts subwindows,
+ keeping them within the updated parent window's limits. If a top-level
+ window happens to extend to the screen's limits, then on resizing the
+ window, <STRONG>resize_term</STRONG> will keep the window extending to the corresponding
+ limit, regardless of whether the screen has shrunk or grown.

+
+ If ncurses is configured to supply its own <STRONG>SIGWINCH</STRONG> handler,
+
+ <STRONG>o</STRONG> on receipt of a <STRONG>SIGWINCH</STRONG>, the handler sets a flag
+

+
+ Calling <STRONG>resizeterm</STRONG> or <STRONG>resize_term</STRONG> directly from a signal handler is
+ unsafe. This indirect method is used to provide a safe way to
+ resize the ncurses data structures.
+
+ If the environment variables <STRONG>LINES</STRONG> or <STRONG>COLUMNS</STRONG> are set, this overrides
+ the library's use of the window size obtained from the operating sys-
+ tem. Thus, even if a <STRONG>SIGWINCH</STRONG> is received, no screen size change may
+ be recorded.

+ It is possible to resize the screen with SVr4 curses, by
+
+ <STRONG>o</STRONG> exiting curses with <STRONG><A HREF="curs_initscr.3x.html">endwin(3x)</A></STRONG> and
+
+ <STRONG>o</STRONG> resuming using <STRONG><A HREF="curs_refresh.3x.html">refresh(3x)</A></STRONG>.
+
+ Doing that clears the screen and is visually distracting.
+
+ This extension of ncurses was introduced in mid-1995. It was adopted
+ in NetBSD curses (2001) and PDCurses (2003).
