The following function tells how small a specific window can get taking
into account the sizes of its areas and the values of
@code{window-min-height}, @code{window-min-width} and
@code{window-size-fixed}.
@defun window-min-size &optional window horizontal ignore pixelwise
This function returns the minimum size of @var{window}. @var{window}
must be a valid window and defaults to the selected one. The optional
argument @var{horizontal} non-@code{nil} means to return the minimum
number of columns of @var{window}; otherwise return the minimum number
of @var{window}'s lines.
The return value makes sure that all components of @var{window} remain
fully visible if @var{window}'s size were actually set to it. With
@var{horizontal} @code{nil} it includes the mode and header line and the
bottom divider. With @var{horizontal} non-@code{nil} it includes the
fringes, a scroll bar, and a right divider, if present. It does not,
however, include the space reserved for the margins.
The optional argument @var{ignore}, if non-@code{nil}, means ignore
restrictions imposed by fixed size windows, @code{window-min-height} or
@code{window-min-width} settings. If @var{ignore} equals @code{safe},
live windows may get as small as @code{window-safe-min-height} lines and
@code{window-safe-min-width} columns. If @var{ignore} is a window,
ignore restrictions for that window only. Any other non-@code{nil}
value means ignore all of the above restrictions for all windows.
The optional argument @var{pixelwise} non-@code{nil} means to return the
minimum size of @var{window} counted in pixels.

Hence, if @var{size} is specified, it's the caller's responsibility to
check whether the emanating windows are large enough to encompass all
areas like a mode line or a scroll bar. The function
@code{window-min-size} (@pxref{Window Sizes}) can be used to determine
the minimum requirements of @var{window} in this regard. Since the new
window usually ``inherits'' areas like the mode line or the scroll bar
from @var{window}, that function is also a good guess for the minimum
size of the new window. The caller should specify a smaller size only
if it correspondingly removes an inherited area before the next
redisplay.
