</PRE>
<H2>DESCRIPTION</H2><PRE>
       The <STRONG>border_set</STRONG> and <STRONG>wborder_set</STRONG>  functions  draw  a  border
       around  the  edges  of  the  current  or specified window.
       These functions do not change the cursor position, and  do
       not wrap.

       Other  than the window, each argument is a complex charac-
       ter with attributes:
              <EM>ls</EM> - left side,
              <EM>rs</EM> - right side,
              <EM>ts</EM> - top side,
              <EM>bs</EM> - bottom side,
              <EM>tl</EM> - top left-hand corner,
              <EM>tr</EM> - top right-hand corner,
              <EM>bl</EM> - bottom left-hand corner, and
              <EM>br</EM> - bottom right-hand corner.

       If any of these arguments is zero, then the  corresponding
       default values (defined in <STRONG>curses.h</STRONG>) are used instead:
              <STRONG>WACS_VLINE</STRONG>,
              <STRONG>WACS_VLINE</STRONG>,
              <STRONG>WACS_HLINE</STRONG>,
              <STRONG>WACS_HLINE</STRONG>,
              <STRONG>WACS_ULCORNER</STRONG>,
              <STRONG>WACS_URCORNER</STRONG>,
              <STRONG>WACS_LLCORNER</STRONG>, and
              <STRONG>WACS_LRCORNER</STRONG>.

       <STRONG>box_set(</STRONG><EM>win</EM>, <EM>verch</EM><STRONG>,</STRONG> <EM>horch</EM><STRONG>);</STRONG> is a shorthand for the follow-
       ing call:

       <STRONG>wborder_set(</STRONG><EM>win</EM><STRONG>,</STRONG> <EM>verch</EM><STRONG>,</STRONG> <EM>verch</EM><STRONG>,</STRONG>
           <EM>horch</EM><STRONG>,</STRONG> <EM>horch</EM><STRONG>,</STRONG> <STRONG>NULL,</STRONG> <STRONG>NULL,</STRONG> <STRONG>NULL,</STRONG> <STRONG>NULL);</STRONG>

       The <STRONG>*line_set</STRONG> functions use <EM>wch</EM> to draw a line starting at
       the current cursor position in the window.  The line is at
       most <EM>n</EM> characters long or as many as fit into the  window.
       The current cursor position is not changed.

       The  <STRONG>hline_set</STRONG>,  <STRONG>mvhline_set</STRONG>, <STRONG>mvwhline_set</STRONG>, and <STRONG>whline_set</STRONG>
       functions draw a line proceeding toward the last column of
       the same line.

       The  <STRONG>vline_set</STRONG>,  <STRONG>mvvline_set</STRONG>, <STRONG>mvwvline_set</STRONG>, and <STRONG>wvline_set</STRONG>
       functions draw a line proceeding toward the last  line  of
       the window.


</PRE>
<H2>NOTES</H2><PRE>
       Note that <STRONG>border_set</STRONG>, <STRONG>hline_set</STRONG>, <STRONG>mvhline_set</STRONG>, <STRONG>mvvline_set</STRONG>,
       <STRONG>mvwhline_set</STRONG>, <STRONG>mvwvline_set</STRONG>, and <STRONG>vline_set</STRONG> may be macros.


</PRE>
<H2>RETURN VALUE</H2><PRE>
       Upon successful completion,  these  functions  return  <STRONG>OK</STRONG>.
       Otherwise, they return <STRONG>ERR</STRONG>.

       Functions  using  a window parameter return an error if it
       is null.

       Functions with a "mv" prefix first perform a cursor  move-
       ment  using  <STRONG>wmove</STRONG>, and return an error if the position is
       outside the window, or if the window pointer is null.
