wresize(3X)                                           wresize(3X)

NAME
       wresize - resize a curses window

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curses.h>

       int wresize(WINDOW *win, int lines, int columns);

DESCRIPTION
       The  wresize  function  reallocates storage for an ncurses
       window to adjust its dimensions to the  specified  values.
       If either dimension is larger than the current values, the
       window's data is filled with blanks that have the  current
       background  rendition  (as  set  by wbkgndset) merged into
       them.

RETURN VALUE
       The function returns the integer ERR upon failure  and  OK
       on success.  It will fail if either of the dimensions less
       than or equal  to  zero,  or  if  an  error  occurs  while
       (re)allocating memory for the window.

NOTES
       The only restriction placed on the dimensions is that they
       be greater than zero.  The dimensions are not compared  to
       curses   screen   dimensions  to  simplify  the  logic  of
       resizeterm.  The caller  must  ensure  that  the  window's
       dimensions fit within the actual screen dimensions.
