NAME

       menu_userptr - associate application data with a menu item

SYNOPSIS

       #include <menu.h>
       int set_menu_userptr(MENU *menu, void *userptr);
       void *menu_userptr(const MENU *menu);

DESCRIPTION

       Every  menu  and every menu item has a field that can be used to hold application-specific
       data (that is, the menu-driver code leaves it alone).  These functions  get  and  set  the
       menu user pointer field.

RETURN VALUE

       menu_userptr returns a pointer (which may be NULL).  It does not set errno.

       set_menu_userptr returns E_OK (success).

SEE ALSO

       ncurses(3NCURSES), menu(3MENU).

NOTES

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

PORTABILITY

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

       The user pointer is a void pointer.  We chose not to leave it as a char pointer  for  SVr4
       compatibility.
