DESCRIPTION

     The border_set  and  wborder_set  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  character
     with attributes:
          ls - left side,
          rs - right side,
          ts - top side,
          bs - bottom side,
          tl - top left-hand corner,
          tr - top right-hand corner,
          bl - bottom left-hand corner, and
          br - bottom right-hand corner.

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

     box_set(win, verch, horch); is a shorthand for the following
     call:

     wborder_set(win, verch, verch,
         horch, horch, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL);

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

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

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

NOTES

     Note that border_set, hline_set,  mvhline_set,  mvvline_set,
     mvwhline_set, mvwvline_set, and vline_set may be macros.

RETURN VALUES

     Upon successful completion, these functions return OK.  Oth-
     erwise, they return ERR.
