DESCRIPTION

     The function new_form creates a new form connected to a
     specified field pointer array (which must be NULL-
     terminated).

     The function free_form disconnects form from its field array
     and frees the storage allocated for the form.

     The function new_form returns NULL on error.

     The function free_form returns one of the following:

     E_OK The routine succeeded.

     E_SYSTEM_ERROR

     E_POSTED
          The form has already been posted.

NOTES

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

     were not supported on Version 7 or BSD versions.
