int post_menu(MENU *menu);
int unpost_menu(MENU *menu);
post_menu() writes menu to the subwindow. The application programmer must use curses library routines to display the menu on the physical screen or call update_panels() if the panels library is being used.
unpost_menu() erases menu from its associated subwindow.
These routines return one of the following:
E_OK The routine returned successfully.
E_SYSTEM_ERROR System error.
E_BAD_ARGUMENT An incorrect argument was passed to the routine.
E_POSTED The menu is already posted.
E_BAD_STATE The routine was called from an initialization or termination function.
E_NO_ROOM The menu does not fit within its subwindow.
E_NOT_POSTED The menu has not been posted.
E_NOT_CONNECTED No items are connected to the menu.
