XStringListToTextProperty(3)    XLIB FUNCTIONS    XStringListToTextProperty(3)



NAME
       XStringListToTextProperty, XTextPropertyToStringList, XFreeStringList,
       XTextProperty - convert string lists and text property structure

SYNTAX
       Status XStringListToTextProperty(char **list, int count, XTextProperty
              *text_prop_return);

       Status XTextPropertyToStringList(XTextProperty *text_prop, char
              ***list_return, int *count_return);

       void XFreeStringList(char **list);

ARGUMENTS
       count     Specifies the number of strings.

       count_return
                 Returns the number of strings.

       list      Specifies the list of strings to be freed.

       list      Specifies a list of null-terminated character strings.

       list_return
                 Returns a list of null-terminated character strings.

       text_prop Specifies the XTextProperty structure to be used.

       text_prop_return
                 Returns the XTextProperty structure.

DESCRIPTION
       The XStringListToTextProperty function sets the specified XTextProperty
       to be of type STRING (format 8) with a value representing the concate-
       nation of the specified list of null-separated character strings.  An
       extra null byte (which is not included in the nitems member) is stored
       at the end of the value field of text_prop_return.  The strings are
       assumed (without verification) to be in the STRING encoding.  If insuf-
       ficient memory is available for the new value string, XStringListTo-
       TextProperty does not set any fields in the XTextProperty structure and
       returns a zero status.  Otherwise, it returns a nonzero status.  To
       free the storage for the value field, use XFree.

       The XTextPropertyToStringList function returns a list of strings repre-
       senting the null-separated elements of the specified XTextProperty
       structure.  The data in text_prop must be of type STRING and format 8.
       Multiple elements of the property (for example, the strings in a dis-
       joint text selection) are separated by NULL (encoding 0).  The contents
       of the property are not null-terminated.  If insufficient memory is
       available for the list and its elements, XTextPropertyToStringList sets
       no return values and returns a zero status.  Otherwise, it returns a
       nonzero status.  To free the storage for the list and its contents, use
       XFreeStringList.

       The XFreeStringList function releases memory allocated by XmbTextProp-
       ertyToTextList, Xutf8TextPropertyToTextList and XTextProperty-
       ToStringList and the missing charset list allocated by XCreateFontSet.

STRUCTURES
       The XTextProperty structure contains:

       typedef struct {
            unsigned char *value;/* property data */
            Atom encoding;      /* type of property */
            int format;         /* 8, 16, or 32 */
            unsigned long nitems;/* number of items in value */
       } XTextProperty;
