int menu_opts_off(MENU *menu, Menu_Options opts);
Menu_Options menu_opts(const MENU *menu);

DESCRIPTION

The function set_menu_opts sets all the given menu’s option bits (menu option bits may be logically-OR’ed together).

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

The function menu_opts_off turns off the given option bits, and leaves others alone.

The function menu_opts returns the menu’s current option bits.

O_IGNORECASE
  Ignore the case when pattern-matching.
O_SHOWMATCH
  Move the cursor to within the item name while pattern-matching.
O_NONCYCLIC

E_OK The routine succeeded.
E_SYSTEM_ERROR
  System error occurred (see errno).
E_POSTED
  The menu is already posted.
