       XmClipboardInquireLength  --  A	clipboard  function that returns the length of the stored

       #include <Xm/CutPaste.h>
       int XmClipboardInquireLength (display, window, format_name, length)
	       Display * display;
	       Window  window;
	       char    * format_name;
	       unsigned long   * length;

       XmClipboardInquireLength returns the length of the data stored under  a	specified  format
       name  for  the  clipboard  data	item. If no data is found for the specified format, or if
       there is no item on the clipboard, this function returns a value of 0 (zero) in the length

       Any  format  passed by name is assumed to have length passed in a call to XmClipboardCopy,
       even though the data has not yet been transferred to the clipboard in that format.

       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.

		 Specifies the name of the format for the data item.

       length	 Specifies the length of the next data item in the specified format.  This  argu-
		 ment  equals  0 (zero) if no data is found for the specified format, or if there
		 is no item on the clipboard.

		 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  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.

       XmClipboardCopy(3) and XmClipboardStartCopy(3).
