XOpenOM(3)				  XLIB FUNCTIONS			       XOpenOM(3)

NAME
       XOpenOM, XCloseOM, XSetOMValues, XGetOMValues, XDisplayOfOM, XLocaleOfOM - open output
       methods

SYNTAX
       XOM XOpenOM(Display *display, XrmDatabase db, char *res_name, char *res_class);

       Status XCloseOM(XOM om);

       char *XSetOMValues(XOM om);

       char *XGetOMValues(XOM om);

       Display *XDisplayOfOM(XOM om);

       char *XLocaleOfOM(XOM om);

ARGUMENTS
       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       db	 Specifies a pointer to the resource database.

       res_name  Specifies the full resource name of the application.

       res_class Specifies the full class name of the application.

       om	 Specifies the output method.

       ...	 Specifies the variable length argument list to set or get XOM values.

DESCRIPTION
       The XOpenOM function opens an output method matching the current locale and modifiers
       specification.  The current locale and modifiers are bound to the output method when
       XOpenOM is called.  The locale associated with an output method cannot be changed.

       The specific output method to which this call will be routed is identified on the basis of
       the current locale and modifiers.  XOpenOM will identify a default output method corre-
       sponding to the current locale.	That default can be modified using XSetLocaleModifiers to
       set the output method modifier.

       The db argument is the resource database to be used by the output method for looking up
       resources that are private to the output method.  It is not intended that this database be
       used to look up values that can be set as OC values in an output context.  If db is NULL,
       no database is passed to the output method.

       The res_name and res_class arguments specify the resource name and class of the applica-
       tion.  They are intended to be used as prefixes by the output method when looking up
       resources that are common to all output contexts that may be created for this output
       method.	The characters used for resource names and classes must be in the X Portable
       Character Set.  The resources looked up are not fully specified if res_name or res_class
       is NULL.

       The res_name and res_class arguments are not assumed to exist beyond the call to XOpenOM.
       The specified resource database is assumed to exist for the lifetime of the output method.

       XOpenOM returns NULL if no output method could be opened.

       The XCloseOM function closes the specified output method.

       The XSetOMValues function presents a variable argument list programming interface for set-
       ting properties or features of the specified output method.  This function returns NULL if
       it succeeds; otherwise, it returns the name of the first argument that could not be set.
       Xlib does not attempt to set arguments from the supplied list that follow the failed argu-
       ment; all arguments in the list preceding the failed argument have been set correctly.

       No standard arguments are currently defined by Xlib.

       The XGetOMValues function presents a variable argument list programming interface for
       querying properties or features of the specified output method.	This function returns
       NULL if it succeeds; otherwise, it returns the name of the first argument that could not
       be obtained.

       The XDisplayOfOM function returns the display associated with the specified output method.

       The XLocaleOfOM returns the locale associated with the specified output method.
