</PRE>
<H2>NAME</H2><PRE>
       <STRONG>menu_userptr</STRONG> - associate application data with a menu item


</PRE>
<H2>SYNOPSIS</H2><PRE>
       <STRONG>#include</STRONG> <STRONG>&lt;menu.h&gt;</STRONG>
       int set_menu_userptr(MENU *menu, void *userptr);
       void *menu_userptr(const MENU *menu);


</PRE>
<H2>DESCRIPTION</H2><PRE>
       Every  menu  and  every  menu item has a field that can be
       used to hold application-specific data (that is, the menu-
       driver code leaves it alone).  These functions get and set
       the menu user pointer field.


</PRE>
<H2>RETURN VALUE</H2><PRE>
       <STRONG>menu_userptr</STRONG> returns a pointer (which may  be  <STRONG>NULL</STRONG>).   It
       does not set errno.

       <STRONG>set_menu_userptr</STRONG> returns <STRONG>E_OK</STRONG> (success).

</PRE>
<H2>NOTES</H2><PRE>
       The header file <STRONG>&lt;menu.h&gt;</STRONG> automatically includes the header
       file <STRONG>&lt;curses.h&gt;</STRONG>.


</PRE>
<H2>PORTABILITY</H2><PRE>
       These routines emulate the System V  menu  library.   They
       were not supported on Version 7 or BSD versions.

       The user pointer is a void pointer.  We chose not to leave
       it as a char pointer for SVr4 compatibility.

       curses by Eric S. Raymond.
