maxy/maxx are short ints (NCURSES_SIZE_T, to be more precise), while wresize()
takes "normal" ints as params. Now I'm trying to make the window really big in
Y dimension by setting 'lines' param to value greater than 32 768.
It is an error to create a WINDOW object larger than the screen. PAD objects may be larger, but WINDOWs cannot (if i'm not mistaken). Looking at the man pages, i cannot find this documented, but i "seem to remember" reading it somewhere. In fact, the X/Open standard defines _no_ error conditions for newwin() (which is really dumb, IMO). The man pages do say:
Special windows called pads may also be manipulated. These are windows which are not constrained to the size of the screen and whose contents need not be completely displayed. See pad(3NCURSES) for more information.
which implies that WINDOWs may not be larger than the screen.
The above prints:
One: 3 22
Two: -22207 22
A quick look at the PAD API (man pad) shows that those functions do take "int" arguments.
