       MrmFetchLiteral -- Fetches a literal from a UID file

       #include <Mrm/MrmPublic.h>
       Cardinal MrmFetchLiteral(
       MrmHierarchy hierarchy_id,
       String index,
       Display *display,
       XtPointer *value,
       MrmCode *type);

       The  MrmFetchLiteral  function  reads  and  returns the value and type of a literal (named
       value) that is stored as a public resource in a single UID file.  This function returns	a
       pointer	to  the  value	of  the literal.  For example, an integer is always returned as a
       pointer to an integer, and a string is always returned as a pointer to a string.

       Applications should not use MrmFetchLiteral for fetching icon or color literals.  If  this
       is attempted, MrmFetchLiteral returns an error.

		 Specifies  the ID of the UID hierarchy that contains the specified literal.  The
		 value of hierarchy_id was returned in a previous call to MrmOpenHierarchyPerDis-

       index	 Specifies  the  UIL name of the literal (pixmap) to fetch.  You must define this
		 name in UIL as an exported value.

       display	 Specifies the display used for the pixmap.  The display argument  specifies  the
		 connection  to the X server.  For more information on the Display structure, see
		 the Xlib function XOpenDisplay.

       value	 Returns the ID of the named literal's value.  The function allocates  space  for
		 the  returned	value.	The application is responsible for managing the allocated
		 space by calling the appropriate deallocation	function.  For	example,  if  the
		 returned  ID symbolizes a pixmap, then the application can recover the allocated
		 space by calling XmDestroyPixmap.

       type	 Returns the named literal's data type.  Types are defined in  the  include  file

       This function returns one of the following status return constants:

		 The function executed successfully.

		 The hierarchy ID was invalid.

		 The literal was not found in the UIL file.

		 The caller tried to fetch a literal of a type not supported by this function.

		 The function failed.

       MrmFetchBitmapLiteral(3), MrmOpenHierarchyPerDisplay(3), MrmFetchIconLiteral(3), MrmFetch-
       ColorLiteral(3), and XOpenDisplay(3).
