NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       menu_pattern - get and set a menu's pattern buffer

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <menu.h>
       int set_menu_pattern(MENU *menu, const char *pattern);
       char *menu_pattern(const MENU *menu);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       Every  menu  has  an  associated pattern match buffer.  As
       input events that are printable ASCII characters come  in,
       they  are  appended  to this match buffer and tested for a
       match, as described in menu_driver(3).

       The function set_menu_pattern sets the pattern buffer  for
       the  given menu and tries to find the first matching item.
       If it succeeds, that item becomes  current;  if  not,  the
       current item does not change.

       The  function  menu_pattern  returns the pattern buffer of
       the given menu.

RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]

       The function menu_pattern  returns  NULL  on  error.   The
       function  set_menu_pattern  may return the following error

       E_OK The routine succeeded.

       E_SYSTEM_ERROR    [Toc]    [Back]
            System error occurred (see errno).

       E_BAD_ARGUMENT    [Toc]    [Back]
            Routine detected an incorrect or  out-of-range  argument.

       E_NO_MATCH    [Toc]    [Back]
            Character failed to match.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

       curses(3), menu(3).

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

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

PORTABILITY    [Toc]    [Back]

       These routines emulate the System V  menu  library.   They
       were not supported on Version 7 or BSD versions.
