SYNOPSIS
       #include <Xm/Xm.h>
       int XmConvertUnits(
       Widget widget,
       int orientation,
       int from_unit_type,
       int from_value,
       int to_unit_type);

DESCRIPTION
       XmConvertUnits  converts  the  value and returns it as the return value from the function.
       For resources of type, dimension, or position, you can  specify	units  using  the  syntax
       described in the XmNunitType resource of the XmPrimitive reference page.

       widget	 Specifies the widget for which the data is to be converted.

       orientation

		 tion when performing the conversions. The orientation parameter can have  values
		 of XmHORIZONTAL or XmVERTICAL.

		 Specifies the current unit type of the supplied value

       from_value
