     bkgrnd, wbkgrnd, bkgrndset, wbkgrndset, getbkgrnd,
     wgetbkgrnd - curses window complex background manipulation


     #include <curses.h>

     int bkgrnd( const cchar_t *wch);
     int wbkgrnd( WINDOW *win, const cchar_t *wch);
     void bkgrndset(const cchar_t *wch );
     void wbkgrndset(WINDOW *win, const cchar_t *wch);
     int getbkgrnd(cchar_t *wch);
     int wgetbkgrnd(WINDOW *win, cchar_t *wch);


     The bkgrndset and wbkgrndset routines manipulate the back-
     ground of the named window. The window background is a
     cchar_t consisting of any combination of attributes (i.e.,
     rendition) and a complex character. The attribute part of
     the background is combined (OR'ed) with all non-blank char-
     acters that are written into the window with waddch.  Both
     the character and attribute parts of the background are com-
     bined with the blank characters. The background becomes a
     property of the character and moves with the character
     through any scrolling and insert/delete line/character

     To the extent possible on a particular terminal, the attri-
     bute part of the background is displayed as the graphic ren-
     dition of the character put on the screen.

     The bkgrnd and wbkgrnd functions set the background property
     of the current or specified window and then apply this set-
     ting to every character position in that window:

          The rendition of every character on the screen is
          changed to the new background rendition.

          Wherever the former background character appears, it is
          changed to the new background character.

     The getbkgrnd function returns the given window's current
     background character/attribute pair via the wch pointer.


     Note that bkgrnd, bkgrndset, and getbkgrnd may be macros.


     The bkgrndset and wbkgrndset routines do not return a value.

     Upon successful completion, the other functions return OK.
     Otherwise, they return ERR. A null window pointer is treated
     as an error.
