NAME
       XmFontListEntryLoad  --	A  font list function that loads a font or creates a font set and
       creates an accompanying font list entry

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Xm/Xm.h>
       XmFontListEntry XmFontListEntryLoad(
       Display *display,
       char *font_name,
       XmFontType type,
       char *tag);

DESCRIPTION
       XmFontListEntryLoad loads a font or creates a font set based on	the  value  of	the  type
       argument.  It creates and returns a font list entry that contains the font or font set and
       the specified tag.

       If the value of type is XmFONT_IS_FONT, the function uses the XtCvtStringToFontStruct rou-
       tine  to  convert  the  value  of  font_name  to  a  font struct.  If the value of type is
       XmFONT_IS_FONTSET, the function uses the XtCvtStringToFontSet converter to create  a  font
       set  in	the  current locale.  XmFontListEntryLoad creates a font list entry that contains
       the font or font set derived from  the  converter.   For  more  information  about  XtCvt-
       StringToFontStruct  and	XtCvtStringToFontSet, see X Toolkit Intrinsics--C Language Inter-
       face.

       display	 Specifies the display where the font list will be used.

       font_name Specifies an X Logical Font Description  (XLFD)  string,  which  is  interpreted
		 either  as  a font name or as a base font name list.  A base font name list is a
		 comma-separated and NULL-terminated string.

       type	 Specifies whether the font_name argument refers to a font name or to a base font
		 name list.  Valid values are XmFONT_IS_FONT and XmFONT_IS_FONTSET.

       tag	 Specifies  the  tag of the font list entry to be created.  The tag may be speci-
		 fied as XmFONTLIST_DEFAULT_TAG, which is used to identify the default font  list
		 element in a font list when specified as part of a resource.

RETURN
       If  the	specified font is not found, or if the specified font set cannot be created, then
       either an implementation-defined font will be opened or a font set will be created, and	a
       warning messge will be generated. If no suitable font can be found or a font set cannot be
       created, then another message will be generated and the function will return NULL;  other-
       wise  the  function returns a font list entry.  If the function returns a font list entry,
       the function allocates space to hold the font list entry. The application  is  responsible
       for managing the allocated space. The application can recover the allocated space by call-
       ing XmFontListEntryFree.
