NAME

       wresize - resize a curses window

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curses.h>

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

DESCRIPTION

       This  is an extension to the curses library.  It 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 wbkgdset) 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.
