       XtStringConversionWarning - issue a conversion warning message

       void XtStringConversionWarning(src, dst_type)
	    String src, dst_type;

       src	 Specifies the string that could not be converted.

       dst_type  Specifies the name of the type to which the string could not be converted.

       The function issues a warning message with name ``conversionError'', type ``string'', class ``XtToolkitError, and the default message
       string ``Cannot convert "src" to type dst_type''.

       XtConvert, XtDirectConvert - invoke resource converters

       void XtConvert(w, from_type, from, to_type, to_return)
	 Widget w;
	 String from_type;
	 XrmValuePtr from;
	 String to_type;
	 XrmValuePtr to_return;

       void XtDirectConvert(converter, args, num_args, from, to_return)
	 XtConverter converter;
	 XrmValuePtr args;
	 Cardinal num_args;
	 XrmValuePtr from;
	 XrmValuePtr to_return;

       args	 Specifies the argument list that contains the additional arguments needed to perform the conversion (often NULL).

       converter Specifies the conversion procedure that is to be called.

       from	 Specifies the value to be converted.

       from_type Specifies the source type.

       num_args  Specifies the number of additional arguments (often zero).

       to_type	 Specifies the destination type.

       to_return Returns the converted value.

       w	 Specifies the widget to use for additional arguments (if any are needed).

       The function looks up the type converter registered to convert from_type to to_type, computes any additional arguments needed, and then

       The function looks in the converter cache to see if this conversion procedure has been called with the specified arguments.  If so, it
       returns a descriptor for information stored in the cache; otherwise, it calls the converter and enters the result in the cache.

       Before calling the specified converter, sets the return value size to zero and the return value address to NULL.  To determine if the con-
       version was successful, the client should check to_return.address for non-NULL.
