Name
       XrmMergeDatabases, XrmGetFileDatabase, XrmPutFileDatabase, XrmGetStringDatabase, XrmDestroyDatabase - manipulate resource databases

Syntax
       void XrmMergeDatabases(source_db, target_db)
	  XrmDatabase source_db, *target_db;

       XrmDatabase XrmGetFileDatabase(filename)
	  char *filename;

       void XrmPutFileDatabase(database, stored_db)
	  XrmDatabase database;
	  char *stored_db;

       XrmDatabase XrmGetStringDatabase(data)
	  char *data;

       void XrmDestroyDatabase(database)
	  XrmDatabase database;

Arguments
       data	 Specifies the database contents using a string.

       database  Specifies the database that is to be used.

       filename  Specifies the resource database file name.

       source_db Specifies the resource database that is to be merged into the target database.

       stored_db Specifies the file name for the stored database.

       target_db Specifies a pointer to the resource database into which the source database is to be merged.

Description
       The function merges the contents of one database into another.  It may overwrite entries in the destination database.  This function is
       used to combine databases (for example, an application specific database of defaults and a database of user preferences).  The merge is
       destructive; that is, the source database is destroyed.

       The function opens the specified file, creates a new resource database, and loads it with the specifications read in from the specified
       file.  The specified file must contain lines in the format accepted by If it cannot open the specified file, returns NULL.

       The function stores a copy of the specified database in the specified file.  The file is an ASCII text file that contains lines in the for-

       it reads the information out of a string instead of out of a file.  Each line is separated by a new-line character in the format accepted

       If database is NULL, returns immediately.
