    # To subscribers of the xforms list from "Rouben Rostamian" <rostamian@umbc.edu> :

    Dear XForms users:

    I am seeking clarification regarding the fl_set_form_atclose() function.

    I have an application which displays several forms simultaneously.
    If I close one of the forms via my window manager's "Close" or
    "Delete" buttons, I want the remaining forms to stay up and continue

    Fortunately, XForms provides the fl_set_form_atclose() function
    exactly for this purpose. The manual says (p. 38 of version 0.89.5):

        [ if fl_set_form_atclose() returns FL_OK ] the form
        is closed, but the application does not terminate.

    What I want to know is the precise meaning of "the form is closed".
    Does it mean the form is hidden, as in fl_hide_form(), or does it
    mean that the form is obliterated, as in fl_free_form()?

    Equivalently, if the user asks to re-display that form, is a plain
    fl_show_form() sufficient, or do I need to recreate the form from
