Could someone tell me what the 6th parameter (nbuf) to new_field() is? The
docs say these working buffers can be used by our application.

It tells how many extra buffers to allocate for the field.
See for example field_buffer() and set_field_buffer().

I am looking at the doc for PAD -- totally missed it since I am now going
by the ncurses doc, and this comes under curses!

I will check out the links just posted by Sadrul.
