        <STRONG>E_UNKNOWN_COMMAND</STRONG>
             The form driver code saw an unknown request code.
        These routines emulate the System V forms library.  They were not  sup-
        ported on Version 7 or BSD versions.
 
-       A  few functions are extensions added for ncurses, e.g., <STRONG>form_driver_w</STRONG>,
-       <STRONG>unfocus_current_field</STRONG>.
+       The  menu facility was documented in SVr4.2 in <EM>Character</EM> <EM>User</EM> <EM>Interface</EM>

+       ncurses,   but   not   provided   by   other   implementations,   e.g.,
+       <STRONG>form_driver_w</STRONG>, <STRONG>unfocus_current_field</STRONG>.
