XResourceManagerString(3)       XLIB FUNCTIONS       XResourceManagerString(3)



NAME
       XResourceManagerString, XScreenResourceString - obtain server resource
       properties

SYNTAX
       char *XResourceManagerString(Display *display);

       char *XScreenResourceString(Screen *screen);

ARGUMENTS
       display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       screen    Specifies the screen.

DESCRIPTION
       The XResourceManagerString function returns the RESOURCE_MANAGER prop-
       erty from the server's root window of screen zero, which was returned
       when the connection was opened using XOpenDisplay.  The property is
       converted from type STRING to the current locale.  The conversion is
       identical to that produced by XmbTextPropertyToTextList for a single
       element STRING property.  The returned string is owned by Xlib and
       should not be freed by the client.  The property value must be in a
       format that is acceptable to XrmGetStringDatabase.  If no property
       exists, NULL is returned.

       The XScreenResourceString function returns the SCREEN_RESOURCES prop-
       erty from the root window of the specified screen.  The property is
       converted from type STRING to the current locale.  The conversion is
       identical to that produced by XmbTextPropertyToTextList for a single
       element STRING property.  The property value must be in a format that
       is acceptable to XrmGetStringDatabase.  If no property exists, NULL is
       returned.  The caller is responsible for freeing the returned string by
       using XFree.
