       XmClipboardInquireFormat -- A clipboard function that returns a specified format name

       #include <Xm/CutPaste.h>
       int XmClipboardInquireFormat (display, window, index, format_name_buf,
	       buffer_len, copied_len)
	       Display * display;
	       Window  window;
	       int     index;
	       XtPointer       format_name_buf;
	       unsigned long   buffer_len;
	       unsigned long   * copied_len;

       XmClipboardInquireFormat  returns  a  specified format name for the data item in the clip-
       board. If the name must be truncated, the function returns a warning status.

       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 of the clipboard
		 functions that it calls.

       index	 Specifies which of the ordered format names to obtain. If this index is  greater
		 than  the  number of formats for the data item, this function returns a 0 (zero)
		 in the copied_len argument.

		 Specifies the buffer that receives the format name.

		 Specifies the number of bytes in the format name buffer.

		 Specifies the number of bytes in the data item copied to the  buffer.	 If  this
		 argument equals 0 (zero), there is no nth format for the data item.

		 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.

		 The data returned is truncated because the user did not provide a  buffer  large
		 enough to hold the data.

		 The  function	could  not find data on the clipboard corresponding to the format
		 requested.  This could occur because the clipboard is empty; there  is  data  on
		 the  clipboard,  but  not  in the requested format; or the data in the requested
		 format was passed by name and is no longer available.
