menu_pattern, set_menu_pattern -- get or set menu pattern
Curses Menu Library (libmenu, -lmenu)
The menu_pattern() function returns a pointer to the string that is cur-
rently in the menu pattern buffer. The menu pattern buffer can be set by
calling set_menu_pattern() which will set the pattern buffer to the
string passed and then attempt to match that string against the names of
the items in the attached items.
The functions return one of the following error values:
E_OK The function was successful.
E_SYSTEM_ERROR There was a system error during the call.
E_BAD_ARGUMENT One or more of the arguments passed to the function was
E_NO_MATCH The character search failed to find a match.
The header <menu.h> automatically includes both <curses.h> and <eti.h>.
