- This is an extension to the curses library. It reallo- - cates storage for anncurseswindow to adjust its dimen- - sions 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 rendi- - tion (as set bywbkgdset) merged into them. +

- The only restriction placed on the dimensions is that they - be greater than zero. The dimensions are not compared to -cursesscreen dimensions to simplify the logic of -resizeterm. The caller must ensure that the window's - dimensions fit within the actual screen dimensions. +
