NAMEmenu_post - write or erase menus from associated subwindows
SYNOPSIS#include <menu.h> int post_menu(MENU *menu); int unpost_menu(MENU *menu);
DESCRIPTIONThe function post_menu displays a menu to its associated subwindow. To trigger physical display of the subwindow, use refresh or some equivalent curses routine (the implicit doupdate triggered by an curses input request will do). post_menu resets the selection status of all items. The function unpost_menu erases menu from its associated subwindow.
RETURN VALUEThese routines return one of the following: E_OK The routine succeeded. E_SYSTEM_ERROR System error occurred (see errno). E_BAD_ARGUMENT Routine detected an incorrect or out-of-range argument. E_POSTED The menu has already been posted. E_BAD_STATE Routine was called from an initialization or termination function. E_NO_ROOM Menu is too large for its window. You should consider to use set_menu_format() to solve the problem. E_NOT_POSTED The menu has not been posted. E_NOT_CONNECTED No items are connected to the menu.

NOTESThe header file <menu.h> automatically includes the header file <curses.h>.
PORTABILITYThese routines emulate the System V menu library. They were not supported on Version 7 or BSD versions.
