XrmUniqueQuark(3X11)     XLIB FUNCTIONS      XrmUniqueQuark(3X11)

     quarks_return
               Returns the list of quarks.

     string    Specifies the string for which a quark or quark
               list is to be allocated.

DESCRIPTION

     The XrmUniqueQuark function allocates a quark that is
     guaranteed not to represent any string that is known to the
     resource manager.

     These functions can be used to convert from string to quark
     representation. If the string is not in the Host Portable
     Character Encoding, the conversion is implementation-
     dependent. The string argument to XrmStringToQuark need not
     be permanently allocated storage. XrmPermStringToQuark is
     just like XrmStringToQuark, except that Xlib is permitted to
     assume the string argument is permanently allocated, and,
     hence, that it can be used as the value to be returned by
     XrmQuarkToString.

     For any given quark, if XrmStringToQuark returns a non-NULL
     value, all future calls will return the same value (identi-
     cal address).

     These functions can be used to convert from quark represen-
     tation to string. The string pointed to by the return value
     must not be modified or freed. The returned string is byte-
     for-byte equal to the original string passed to one of the
     string-to-quark routines. If no string exists for that
     quark, XrmQuarkToString returns NULL. For any given quark,
     if XrmQuarkToString returns a non-NULL value, all future
     calls will return the same value (identical address).

     These functions can be used to convert from string to quark
     representation. If the string is not in the Host Portable
     Character Encoding, the conversion is implementation-
     dependent. The string argument to XrmStringToQuark need not
     be permanently allocated storage. XrmPermStringToQuark is
     just like XrmStringToQuark, except that Xlib is permitted to
     assume the string argument is permanently allocated, and,
     hence, that it can be used as the value to be returned by
     XrmQuarkToString.

     For any given quark, if XrmStringToQuark returns a non-NULL
     value, all future calls will return the same value (identi-
     cal address).

     The XrmStringToQuarkList function converts the null-
     terminated string (generally a fully qualified name) to a
     list of quarks. The caller must allocate sufficient space
     for the quarks list before calling XrmStringToQuarkList.

     Note that the string must be in the valid ResourceName for-
     mat (see section 15.1). If the string is not in the Host
     Portable Character Encoding, the conversion is
     implementation-dependent.

     A binding list is a list of type XrmBindingList and indi-
     cates if components of name or class lists are bound tightly
     or loosely (that is, if wildcarding of intermediate com-
     ponents is specified).

     typedef enum {XrmBindTightly, XrmBindLoosely} XrmBinding, *XrmBindingList;

     XrmBindTightly indicates that a period separates the com-
     ponents, and XrmBindLoosely indicates that an asterisk
     separates the components.

     The XrmStringToBindingQuarkList function converts the speci-
     fied string to a binding list and a quark list. The caller
     must allocate sufficient space for the quarks list and the
     binding list before calling XrmStringToBindingQuarkList. If
     the string is not in the Host Portable Character Encoding
     the conversion is implementation-dependent. Component names
     in the list are separated by a period or an asterisk charac-
     ter. If the string does not start with period or asterisk, a
     period is assumed. For example, ``*a.b*c'' becomes:

     quarks a       b      c
     bindings       loose  tightloose
