DESCRIPTION

       stfl  is  a  library  which  implements  a  curses-based widget set for text terminals.  A
       special language (the Structured Terminal Forms Language) is used to describe  stfl  GUIs.
       The  language  is  designed to be easy and fast to write so an application programmer does
       not need to spend ages fiddling around with the  GUI  and  can  concentrate  on  the  more
       interesting programming tasks.

       stfl_create
              Parses  the  the  stfl  description  text  passed  as  parameter and returns a form
              handler.

       stfl_free
              Free all resources associated with this form

       stfl_run
              Return the next event. If no more prior generated events are  waiting  display  the
              form and process one input character.

       stfl_reset
              The  stfl_run() function automatically activates ncurses. This function can be used
              to explicitely switch  back  to  normal  text  mode.  In  some  languages  this  is
              automatically done on program termination.

       stfl_get
              Returns  the  current  value  of the specified variable. When the variable does not
              exist this function returns an undefined value.

       stfl_set
              This sets the specified variable to the specified value.

       stfl_get_focus
              Returns the name of the widget which currently has the focus or an undefined  value
              when the widget having the focus has no name.

       stfl_set_focus
              Set the focus to the specified widget.

       setfl_quote
              Quote the text so it can be savely used as variable value in stfl code.

       stfl_dump
              Return  the subtree starting with the widget specified in the 2nd parameter as stfl
              code fragment.

       stfl_modify
              Import the stfl code specified in the 4th parameter to an existing  form.  The  2nd
              parameter  is  used  to  specify  a  widget which is used as starting point for the
              modification. The 3rd parameter is a string specifying how the new stfl code should
              be added to the widget tree.

       stfl_lookup
              Lookup  widgets  in  the  form using a path and optionally assign a new name.  This
              function is not implemented yet.

       stfl_error
              Set the error handling algorithm.
