     menu_spacing - Control spacing between menu items.


     #include <menu.h>
     int set_menu_spacing(MENU *menu,
                          int spc_description,
                          int spc_rows,
                          int spc_columns);
     int menu_spacing(const MENU *menu,
                      int* spc_description,
                      int* spc_rows,
                      int* spc_columns);


     The function set_menu_spacing sets the spacing informations
     for the menu. spc_description controls the number of spaces
     between an item name and an item description. It must not be
     larger than TABSIZE. The menu system puts in the middle of
     this spacing area the pad character. The remaining parts are
     filled with spaces. spc_rows controls the number of rows
     that are used for an item. It must not be larger than 3. The
     menu system inserts the blank lines between item rows, these
     lines will contain the pad character in the appropriate
     positions. spc_columns controls the number of blanks between
     columns of items. It must not be larger than TABSIZE. A
     value of 0 for all the spacing values resets them to the
     default, which is 1 for all of them.
     The function menu_spacing passes back the spacing info for
     the menu. If a pointer is NULL, this specific info is simply
     not returned.


     Both routines return E_OK on success. set_menu_spacing may
     return E_POSTED if the menu is posted, or E_BAD_ARGUMENT if
     one of the spacing values is out of range.


     curses(3), menu(3).


     The header file <menu.h> automatically includes the header
     file <curses.h>.


     These routines are specific to ncurses.  They were not sup-
     ported on Version 7, BSD or System V implementations.  It is
     recommended that any code depending on them be conditioned
