int set_item_userptr(ITEM *item, const void *userptr);
const void *item_userptr(const ITEM *item);
Every menu item has a field that can be used to hold application-specific data (that is, the menu-driver code leaves it alone). These functions get and set that field.
The header file <menu.h> automatically includes the header file <curses.h>.
These routines emulate the System V menu library. They were not supported on Version 7 or BSD versions.
The user pointer should be a void pointer. We leave it as a char pointer for SVr4 compatibility.
