       XmClipboardStartRetrieve  --  A clipboard function that prepares to retrieve data from the

       #include <Xm/CutPaste.h>
       int XmClipboardStartRetrieve (display, window, timestamp)
	       Display * display;
	       Window  window;
	       Time    timestamp;

       XmClipboardStartRetrieve tells the clipboard routines that the  application  is	ready  to
       start  copying  an  item  from the clipboard.  The clipboard is locked by this routine and
       stays locked until XmClipboardEndRetrieve is called. Between a call to XmClipboardStartRe-
       trieve  and  a  call to XmClipboardEndRetrieve, multiple calls to XmClipboardRetrieve with
       the same format name result in data being incrementally copied from  the  clipboard  until
       the data in that format has all been retrieved.

       A  return  value  of  XmClipboardTruncate from calls to XmClipboardRetrieve indicates that
       more data remains to be copied in the given format.  It is recommended that any	calls  to
       the  Inquire  functions	that  the application needs to make to complete the copy from the
       clipboard be made between the call to  XmClipboardStartRetrieve	and  the  first  call  to
       XmClipboardRetrieve.  This  way, the application does not need to call XmClipboardLock and

       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.

       timestamp Specifies the time of the event that triggered the copy.  A valid timestamp must
		 be supplied; it is not sufficient to use CurrentTime.

		 The function is 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.
