       XmClipboardCopyByName -- A clipboard function that copies a data item passed by name

       #include <Xm/CutPaste.h>
       int XmClipboardCopyByName (display, window, data_id,
	       buffer, length, private_id)
	       Display * display;
	       Window  window;
	       long    data_id;
	       XtPointer       buffer;
	       unsigned long   length;
	       long    private_id;

       XmClipboardCopyByName copies the actual data for a data item that was previously passed by
       name to the clipboard. Data is considered to be passed by name when a call to XmClipboard-
       Copy  is  made  with a NULL buffer parameter. Additional calls to this function append new
       data to the existing data.

       display	 Specifies a pointer to the Display structure that was	returned  in  a  previous
		 call to XOpenDisplay or XtDisplay.

       window	 Specifies  the  window ID of a widget that relates the application window to the
		 clipboard. The widget's window ID can be obtained through  XtWindow.	The  same
		 application  instance	should pass the same window ID to each clipboard function
		 it calls.

       data_id	 Specifies an identifying number assigned to the data item that uniquely  identi-
		 fies  the  data item and the format. This number was assigned by XmClipboardCopy
		 to the data item.

       buffer	 Specifies the buffer from which the clipboard copies the data.

       length	 Specifies the number of bytes in the data item.

		 Specifies the private data that the application wants to  store  with	the  data

		 The function was successful.

		 The function failed because the clipboard was locked by another application. The
		 application can continue to call the function again  with  the  same  parameters
		 until	the  lock goes away. This gives the application the opportunity to ask if
		 the user wants to keep trying or to give up on the operation.
