       menu_spacing - Control spacing between menu items.


       #include <menu.h>
       int set_menu_spacing(MENU *menu,
                            int spc_description,
                            int spc_rows,
                            int spc_columns);
       int menu_spacing(const MENU *menu,
                        int* spc_description,
                        int* spc_rows,
                        int* spc_columns);


       The  function  set_menu_spacing  sets the spacing informa-
       tions for the menu.  Its  parameter  spc_description  con-
       trols  the  number  of  spaces between an item name and an
       item description.  It must not  be  larger  than  TABSIZE.
       The  menu  system  puts in the middle of this spacing area
       the pad character.  The remaining parts  are  filled  with
       spaces.   The  spc_rows  parameter  controls the number of
       rows that are used for an item.  It  must  not  be  larger
       than  3.   The menu system inserts the blank lines between
       item rows, these lines will contain the pad  character  in
       the appropriate positions.  The spc_columns parameter con-
       trols the number of blanks between columns of  items.   It
       must not be larger than TABSIZE.  A value of 0 for all the
       spacing values resets them to the default, which is 1  for
       all of them.
       The function menu_spacing passes back the spacing info for
       the menu.  If a pointer is NULL,  this  specific  info  is
       simply not returned.


       Both  routines  return  E_OK on success.  set_menu_spacing
       may return E_POSTED if the menu is posted, or  E_BAD_ARGU-
       MENT if one of the spacing values is out of range.

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


       These routines are specific to  ncurses.   They  were  not
       supported  on  Version 7, BSD or System V implementations.
       It is recommended that any code depending on them be  con-
       ditioned using NCURSES_VERSION.
