NAME
       XmCvtXmStringToByteStream -- A compound string function that converts a compound string to
       a Byte Stream format

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Xm/Xm.h>
       unsigned int XmCvtXmStringToByteStream(
       XmString string,
       unsigned char **prop_return);

DESCRIPTION
       XmCvtXmStringToByteStream converts a compound string to a string of bytes representing the
       compound  string in Byte Stream format.	This routine is typically used by the source of a
       data transfer operation to produce a Byte Stream representation for  transferring  a  com-
       pound string to a destination.

       If  prop_return	is  not NULL, this function creates a string of characters in Byte Stream
       format and returns it in prop_return.  The function also returns the number  of	bytes  in
       prop_return.   If prop_return is NULL, the function does not return the Byte Stream format
       string, but it does calculate and return the number of bytes that would appear in the Byte
       Stream format string.

       string	 Specifies a compound string to be converted to Byte Stream format

       prop_return
		 Specifies  a  pointer	to  a  string  in  Byte Stream format that is created and
		 returned by this function.  If prop_return is NULL, no Byte Stream format string
		 is  returned.	 When a Byte Stream format string is returned, the function allo-
		 cates space to hold it.  The application is responsible for managing this  allo-
		 cated space.  The application can recover the allocated space by calling XtFree.

RETURN
       Returns	the  number  of  bytes in the Byte Stream representation (whether or not the Byte
       Stream representation is returned).
