XrmPutResource(3)               XLIB FUNCTIONS               XrmPutResource(3)



NAME
       XrmPutResource, XrmQPutResource, XrmPutStringResource, XrmQPutStringRe-
       source, XrmPutLineResource - store database resources

SYNTAX
       void XrmPutResource(XrmDatabase *database, char *specifier, char *type,
              XrmValue *value);

       void XrmQPutResource(XrmDatabase *database, XrmBindingList bindings,
              XrmQuarkList quarks, XrmRepresentation type, XrmValue *value);

       void XrmPutStringResource(XrmDatabase *database, char *specifier, char
              *value);

       void XrmQPutStringResource(XrmDatabase *database, XrmBindingList bind-
              ings, XrmQuarkList quarks, char *value);

       void XrmPutLineResource(XrmDatabase *database, char *line);

ARGUMENTS
       bindings  Specifies a list of bindings.

       database  Specifies the resource database.

       line      Specifies the resource name and value pair as a single
                 string.

       quarks    Specifies the complete or partial name or the class list of
                 the resource.

       specifier Specifies a complete or partial specification of the
                 resource.

       type      Specifies the type of the resource.

       value     Specifies the value of the resource, which is specified as a
                 string.

DESCRIPTION
       If database contains NULL, XrmPutResource creates a new database and
       returns a pointer to it.  XrmPutResource is a convenience function that
       calls XrmStringToBindingQuarkList followed by:

       XrmQPutResource(database, bindings, quarks, XrmStringToQuark(type), value)

       If the specifier and type are not in the Host Portable Character Encod-
       ing, the result is implementation-dependent.  The value is stored in
       the database without modification.

       If database contains NULL, XrmQPutResource creates a new database and
       returns a pointer to it.  If a resource entry with the identical bind-
       ings and quarks already exists in the database, the previous type and
       value are replaced by the new specified type and value.  The value is
       stored in the database without modification.

       If database contains NULL, XrmPutStringResource creates a new database
       and returns a pointer to it.  XrmPutStringResource adds a resource with
       the specified value to the specified database.  XrmPutStringResource is
       a convenience function that first calls XrmStringToBindingQuarkList on
       the specifier and then calls XrmQPutResource, using a ``String'' repre-
       sentation type.  If the specifier is not in the Host Portable Character
       Encoding, the result is implementation-dependent.  The value is stored
       in the database without modification.

       If database contains NULL, XrmQPutStringResource creates a new database
       and returns a pointer to it.  XrmQPutStringResource is a convenience
       routine that constructs an XrmValue for the value string (by calling
       strlen to compute the size) and then calls XrmQPutResource, using a
       ``String'' representation type.  The value is stored in the database
       without modification.

       If database contains NULL, XrmPutLineResource creates a new database
       and returns a pointer to it.  XrmPutLineResource adds a single resource
       entry to the specified database.  The line should be in valid Resource-
       Line format (see section 15.1) terminated by a newline or null charac-
       ter; the database that results from using a string with incorrect syn-
       tax is implementation-dependent.  The string is parsed in the locale of
       the database.  If the ResourceName is not in the Host Portable Charac-
       ter Encoding, the result is implementation-dependent.  Note that com-
       ment lines are not stored.
