       class	 Specifies the resource class.

       classes	 Specifies a list of resource classes.

       database  Specifies the database that is to be used.

       list	 Specifies the search list returned by

		 Specifies the number of entries (not the byte size) allocated for list_return.

		 Returns a search list for further use.

       name	 Specifies the resource name.

       names	 Specifies a list of resource names.

		 Specifies the fully qualified class of the value being retrieved (as a quark).

		 Specifies the fully qualified name of the value being retrieved (as a quark).

		 Returns a pointer to the representation type of the destination (as a quark).

       str_class Specifies the fully qualified class of the value being retrieved (as a string).

       str_name  Specifies the fully qualified name of the value being retrieved (as a string).

		 Returns a pointer to the representation type of the destination (as a string).

		 Returns data representation type.

		 Returns the value in the database.

       The and functions retrieve a resource from the specified database.  Both take a fully qualified name/class pair, a destination resource
       representation, and the address of a value (size/address pair).	The value and returned type point into database memory; therefore, you
       must not modify the data.

       The database only frees or overwrites entries on or A client that is not storing new values into the database or is not merging the data-
       base should be safe using the address passed back at any time until it exits.  If a resource was found, both and return otherwise, they

       The function takes a list of names and classes and returns a list of database levels where a match might occur.	The returned list is in
       best-to-worst order and uses the same algorithm as for determining precedence.  If list_return was large enough for the search list,
       returns otherwise, it returns

       The size of the search list that the caller must allocate is dependent upon the number of levels and wildcards in the resource specifiers
       that are stored in the database.  The worst case length is 3n, where n is the number of name or class components in names or classes.

       When using followed by multiple probes for resources with a common name and class prefix, only the common prefix should be specified in the
       name and class list to

       The function searches the specified database levels for the resource that is fully identified by the specified name and class.  The search
       stops with the first match.  returns if the resource was found; otherwise, it returns

       A call to with a name and class list containing all but the last component of a resource name followed by a call to with the last component
       name and class returns the same database entry as and with the fully qualified name and class.
