Every form has an associated pair of curses windows. The form window displays any title and border associated with the window; the form sub-window displays the items of the form that are currently available for selection.

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.

The function scale-form returns the a list of two elements: minimum size required for the subwindow of form.
