XSaveContext(3)                 XLIB FUNCTIONS                 XSaveContext(3)



NAME
       XSaveContext, XFindContext, XDeleteContext, XUniqueContext - associa-
       tive look-up routines

SYNTAX
       int XSaveContext(Display *display, XID rid, XContext context, XPointer
              data);

       int XFindContext(Display *display, XID rid, XContext context, XPointer
              *data_return);

       int XDeleteContext(Display *display, XID rid, XContext context);

       XContext XUniqueContext(void);

ARGUMENTS
       context   Specifies the context type to which the data belongs.

       data      Specifies the data to be associated with the window and type.

       data_return
                 Returns the data.

       display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       rid       Specifies the resource ID with which the data is associated.

DESCRIPTION
       If an entry with the specified resource ID and type already exists,
       XSaveContext overrides it with the specified context.  The XSaveContext
       function returns a nonzero error code if an error has occurred and zero
       otherwise.  Possible errors are XCNOMEM (out of memory).

       Because it is a return value, the data is a pointer.  The XFindContext
       function returns a nonzero error code if an error has occurred and zero
       otherwise.  Possible errors are XCNOENT (context-not-found).

       The XDeleteContext function deletes the entry for the given resource ID
       and type from the data structure.  This function returns the same error
       codes that XFindContext returns if called with the same arguments.
       XDeleteContext does not free the data whose address was saved.

       The XUniqueContext function creates a unique context type that may be
       used in subsequent calls to XSaveContext.
