MENU_NEW(3)                Library Functions Manual                MENU_NEW(3)

NAME
     free_menu, new_menu -- create or delete a menu

LIBRARY
     Curses Menu Library (libmenu, -lmenu)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;menu.h>&gt;

     int
     free_menu(MENU *menu);

     MENU *
     new_menu(ITEMS **items);

DESCRIPTION
     The free_menu() menu function destroys the given menu and frees all
     allocated storage associated with the menu.  All items associated with
     the menu are detached from the menu before it is destroyed.  The
     new_menu() function allocates storage for a new menu and initializes all
     the values to the defined defaults.  If the items pointer passed is not a
     NULL then the given NULL terminated array of items is attached to the new
     menu.

RETURN VALUES
     The new_menu() function returns NULL on error, while the free_menu()
     function returns one of the following error values:

     E_OK            The function was successful.
     E_BAD_ARGUMENT  One or more of the arguments passed to the function was
                     incorrect.
     E_POSTED        The menu is already posted.
