The function form_opts_on turns on the given option bits, and leaves others alone.

The function form_opts returns the form's current option bits.

Overload the REQ_NEW_LINE forms driver request so that calling it at the end of a field goes to the next field.
O_BS_OVERLOAD
Overload the REQ_DEL_PREV forms driver request so that calling it at the beginning of a field goes to the previous field.

Except for form_opts, each routine returns one of the following:
E_OK

System error occurred (see errno).
