ARGUMENTS
       bindings_return
		 Returns the binding list.

       quark	 Specifies the quark for which the equivalent string is desired.

       quarks_return
		 Returns the list of quarks.

       string	 Specifies the string for which a quark or quark list is to be allocated.

DESCRIPTION
       The XrmUniqueQuark function allocates a quark that is guaranteed not to represent any
       string that is known to the resource manager.

       These functions can be used to convert from string to quark representation.  If the string
       is not in the Host Portable Character Encoding, the conversion is implementation-depen-
       dent.  The string argument to XrmStringToQuark need not be permanently allocated storage.
       XrmPermStringToQuark is just like XrmStringToQuark, except that Xlib is permitted to
       assume the string argument is permanently allocated, and, hence, that it can be used as
       the value to be returned by XrmQuarkToString.

       For any given quark, if XrmStringToQuark returns a non-NULL value, all future calls will
       return the same value (identical address).

       These functions can be used to convert from quark representation to string.  The string
       pointed to by the return value must not be modified or freed.  The returned string is
       byte-for-byte equal to the original string passed to one of the string-to-quark routines.
       If no string exists for that quark, XrmQuarkToString returns NULL.  For any given quark,
       if XrmQuarkToString returns a non-NULL value, all future calls will return the same value
       (identical address).

       These functions can be used to convert from string to quark representation.  If the string
       is not in the Host Portable Character Encoding, the conversion is implementation-depen-
       dent.  The string argument to XrmStringToQuark need not be permanently allocated storage.
       XrmPermStringToQuark is just like XrmStringToQuark, except that Xlib is permitted to
       assume the string argument is permanently allocated, and, hence, that it can be used as
       the value to be returned by XrmQuarkToString.

       For any given quark, if XrmStringToQuark returns a non-NULL value, all future calls will
       return the same value (identical address).

       The XrmStringToQuarkList function converts the null-terminated string (generally a fully
       qualified name) to a list of quarks.  The caller must allocate sufficient space for the
       quarks list before calling XrmStringToQuarkList.  Note that the string must be in the
       valid ResourceName format (see section 15.1).  If the string is not in the Host Portable
       Character Encoding, the conversion is implementation-dependent.

       A binding list is a list of type XrmBindingList and indicates if components of name or
       class lists are bound tightly or loosely (that is, if wildcarding of intermediate compo-
       nents is specified).

       typedef enum {XrmBindTightly, XrmBindLoosely} XrmBinding, *XrmBindingList;

       XrmBindTightly indicates that a period separates the components, and XrmBindLoosely indi-
       cates that an asterisk separates the components.

       The XrmStringToBindingQuarkList function converts the specified string to a binding list
       and a quark list.  The caller must allocate sufficient space for the quarks list and the
       binding list before calling XrmStringToBindingQuarkList.  If the string is not in the Host
       Portable Character Encoding the conversion is implementation-dependent.	Component names
       in the list are separated by a period or an asterisk character.	If the string does not
       start with period or asterisk, a period is assumed.  For example, ``*a.b*c'' becomes:

       quarks	  a	  b
       bindings   loose   tight
