MrmOpenHierarchy(library call)					   MrmOpenHierarchy(library call)

NAME
       MrmOpenHierarchy -- Allocates a hierarchy ID and opens all the UID files in the hierarchy

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Mrm/MrmPublic.h>
       Cardinal MrmOpenHierarchy(
       MrmCount num_files,
       String file_names_list[],
       MrmOsOpenParamPtr *ancillary_structures_list,
       MrmHierarchy *hierarchy_id);

DESCRIPTION
       This  routine  is  obsolete  and  exists  for  compatibility with previous releases. It is
       replaced by MrmOpenHierarchyPerDisplay.	MrmOpenHierarchy is identical  to  MrmOpenHierar-
       chyPerDisplay except that MrmOpenHierarchy does not take a display argument.

       num_files Specifies the number of files in the name list.

       file_names_list
		 Specifies an array of character strings that identify the UID files.

       ancillary_structures_list
		 A list of operating-system-dependent ancillary structures corresponding to items
		 such as filenames, clobber flags, and so forth.  This argument  should  be  NULL
		 for  most  operations.  If you need to reference this structure, see the defini-
		 tion of MrmOsOpenParamPtr in the MrmPublic.h header file for more information.

       hierarchy_id
		 Returns the search hierarchy ID.  The search hierarchy ID identifies the list of
		 UID files that MRM searches (in order) when performing subsequent fetch calls.

       Each  UID file string in file_names_list can specify either a full pathname or a filename.
       If a UID file string has a leading slash (/), it specifies a full pathname, and MRM  opens
       the  file  as  specified.   Otherwise,  the UID file string specifies a filename.  In this
       case, MRM looks for the file along a search path  specified  by	the  UIDPATH  environment
       variable  or  by  a default search path, which varies depending on whether or not the XAP-
       PLRESDIR environment variable is set.

       The UIDPATH environment variable specifies a search path and naming conventions associated
       with  UID files.  It can contain the substitution field %U, where the UID file string from
       the file_names_list argument to MrmOpenHierarchyPerDisplay is substituted for %U.  It  can
       also  contain  the  substitution  fields  accepted by XtResolvePathname.  The substitution
       field %T is always mapped to uid.  The entire path is first searched  with  %S  mapped  to
       .uid.  If no file is found, it is searched again with %S mapped to NULL.

       If no display is set prior to calling this function, the result of this function's call to
       XtResolvePathname is undefined.

       For example, the following UIDPATH value and MrmOpenHierarchy call cause MRM to	open  two
       separate UID files:

       UIDPATH=/uidlib/%L/%U.uid:/uidlib/%U/%L
	 static char *uid_files[] = {"/usr/users/me/test.uid", "test2"};
	 MrmHierarchy  *Hierarchy_id;
	 MrmOpenHierarchy((MrmCount)2,uid_files, NULL, Hierarchy_id)

       MRM  opens  the	first  file,  /usr/users/me/test.uid, as specified in the file_names_list
       argument to MrmOpenHierarchy, because the UID file string in the file_names_list  argument
       specifies   a   full   pathname.    MRM	looks  for  the  second  file,	test2,	first  as
       /uidlib/%L/test2.uid and second as /uidlib/test2/%L, where the display's  language  string
       is substituted for %L.

       After  MrmOpenHierarchy	opens  the UID hierarchy, you should not delete or modify the UID
       files until you close the UID hierarchy by calling MrmCloseHierarchy.

       If UIDPATH is not set but the environment variable XAPPLRESDIR is set,  MRM  searches  the
       following pathnames:

	  o  %U%S

	  o  $XAPPLRESDIR/%L/uid/%N/%U%S

	  o  $XAPPLRESDIR/%l/uid/%N/%U%S

	  o  $XAPPLRESDIR/uid/%N/%U%S

	  o  $XAPPLRESDIR/%L/uid/%U%S

	  o  $XAPPLRESDIR/%l/uid/%U%S

	  o  $XAPPLRESDIR/uid/%U%S

	  o  $HOME/uid/%U%S

	  o  $HOME/%U%S

	  o  /usr/lib/X11/%L/uid/%N/%U%S

	  o  /usr/lib/X11/%l/uid/%N/%U%S

	  o  /usr/lib/X11/uid/%N/%U%S

	  o  /usr/lib/X11/%L/uid/%U%S

	  o  /usr/lib/X11/%l/uid/%U%S

	  o  /usr/lib/X11/uid/%U%S

	  o  /usr/include/X11/uid/%U%S

       If neither UIDPATH nor XAPPLRESDIR is set, MRM searches the following pathnames:

	  o  %U%S

	  o  HOME/%L/uid/%N/%U%S

	  o  HOME/%l/uid/%N/%U%S

	  o  $HOME/uid/%N/%U%S

	  o  $HOME/%L/uid/%U%S

	  o  $HOME/%l/uid/%U%S

	  o  $HOME/uid/%U%S

	  o  $HOME/%U%S

	  o  /usr/lib/X11/%L/uid/%N/%U%S

	  o  /usr/lib/X11/%l/uid/%N/%U%S

	  o  /usr/lib/X11/uid/%N/%U%S

	  o  /usr/lib/X11/%L/uid/%U%S

	  o  /usr/lib/X11/%l/uid/%U%S

	  o  /usr/lib/X11/uid/%U%S

	  o  /usr/include/X11/uid/%U%S

       These paths are defaults that vendors may change.  For example, a vendor may use different
       directories for /usr/lib/X11 and /usr/include/X11.

       The following substitutions are used in these paths:

       %U	 The UID file string, from the file_names_list argument.

       %N	 The class name of the application.

       %L	 The display's language string.  This string is influenced by  XtSetLanguageProc.
		 The default string is determined by calling setlocale(LC_ALL, NULL).

       %l	 The language component of the display's language string.

       %S	 The  suffix to the filename.  The entire path is first searched with a suffix of
		 .uid.	If no file is found, it is searched again with a NULL suffix.

RETURN
       This function returns one of the following status return constants:

       MrmSUCCESS
		 The function executed successfully.

       MrmNOT_FOUND
		 File not found.

       MrmFAILURE
		 The function failed.
