-</PRE>
-<H2>DESCRIPTION</H2><PRE>
-       The  <B>menu</B> library provides terminal-independent facilities
-       for composing menu systems  on  character-cell  terminals.
-       The library includes: item routines, which create and mod-
-       ify menu items; and menu routines, which group items  into
-       menus, display menus on the screen, and handle interaction
-       with the user.
-
-       The <B>menu</B> library uses the <B>curses</B> libraries, and  a  curses
-       initialization  routine  such  as  <B>initscr</B>  must be called
-       before using any of these  functions.   To  use  the  <B>menu</B>
-       library, link with the options <B>-lmenu</B> <B>-lcurses</B>.
-
-
-   <B>Current</B> <B>Default</B> <B>Values</B> <B>for</B> <B>Item</B> <B>Attributes</B>
-       The  <B>menu</B>  library  maintains  a  default  value  for item
-       attributes.  You can get or set this  default  by  calling
-       the  appropriate  <B>get_</B>  or  <B>set_</B>  routine with a <B>NULL</B> item
-       pointer.  Changing  this  default  with  a  <B>set_</B>  function
-       affects  future  item  creations,  but does not change the
-       rendering of items already created.
