       #include <form.h>
       int set_field_fore(FIELD *field, chtype attr);
       chtype field_fore(const FIELD *field);
       int set_field_back(FIELD *field, chtype attr);
       chtype field_back(const FIELD *field);
       int set_field_pad(FIELD *field, int pad);

       attribute.  The default is A_STANDOUT.

       The  function set_field_back sets the background attribute
       of form. This is the highlight used to display the  extent

       background attribute.  The default is A_NORMAL.

       The function set_field_pad sets the character used to fill
       the  field.   The  function  field_pad  returns  the given

       These  routines  emulate the System V forms library.  They
       were not supported on Version 7 or BSD versions.
