Every form has an associated pair of curses windows. The form window
displays any title and border associated with the window; the form
subwindow displays the items of the form that are currently available
The first four functions get and set those windows. It is not
necessary to set either window; by default, the driver code uses
stdscr for both.
In the set_ functions, window argument of NULL is treated as though
it were stsdcr. A form argument of NULL is treated as a request to
change the system default form window or subwindow.
The function scale_form returns the minimum size required for the
subwindow of form.
Routines that return pointers return NULL on error. Routines that
return an integer return one of the following error codes:
E_OK The routine succeeded.
System error occurred (see errno).
Routine detected an incorrect or out-of-range argument.
The form has already been posted.
No items are connected to the form.
