DESCRIPTION
     Calling the function field_back() will return the character attributes
     that will be applied to a field that is not the current field, these
     attributes can be set by the set_field_back() function.  The field_fore()
     function returns the character attributes that will be used to indicate
     that a field is the currently active one on the form, this attribute may
     be set by using the set_field_fore() function.  The pad character for a
     field is the character that will be printed in all field locations not
     occupied with actual field contents.  The pad character can be retrieved
     by calling the field_pad() function, the pad character is set by using
     the set_field_pad() function.

RETURN VALUES
