       information

SYNTAX
       XIM XOpenIM(Display *display, XrmDatabase db, char *res_name, char *res_class);

       Status XCloseIM(XIM im);

       char *XSetIMValues(XIM im, ...);

       char *XGetIMValues(XIM im, ...);

       Display *XDisplayOfIM(XIM im);

       char *XLocaleOfIM(XIM im);

       Bool XRegisterIMInstantiateCallback(Display *display, XrmDatabase db, char *res_name, char
	      *res_class, XIDProc callback, XPointer client_data);

       Bool XUnregisterIMInstantiateCallback(Display *display, XrmDatabase db, char *res_name,
	      char *res_class, XIDProc callback, XPointer client_data);

ARGUMENTS
       callback  Specifies a pointer to the input method instantiate callback.

       client_data
		 Specifies the additional client data.

       db	 Specifies a pointer to the resource database.

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       im	 Specifies the input method.

       res_class Specifies the full class name of the application.

       res_name  Specifies the full resource name of the application.

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

DESCRIPTION
       The XOpenIM function opens an input method, matching the current locale and modifiers
       specification.  Current locale and modifiers are bound to the input method at opening
       time.  The locale associated with an input method cannot be changed dynamically.  This
       implies that the strings returned by XmbLookupString or XwcLookupString, for any input
       context affiliated with a given input method will be encoded in the locale current at the
       time the input method is opened.

       The specific input method to which this call will be routed is identified on the basis of
       the current locale.  XOpenIM will identify a default input method corresponding to the
       current locale.	That default can be modified using XSetLocaleModifiers for the input
       method modifier.

       The db argument is the resource database to be used by the input method for looking up
       resources that are private to the input method.	It is not intended that this database be
       used to look up values that can be set as IC values in an input context.  If db is NULL,
       no database is passed to the input 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 input method when looking up
       resources that are common to all input contexts that may be created for this input 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 XOpenIM.
       The specified resource database is assumed to exist for the lifetime of the input method.

       XOpenIM returns NULL if no input method could be opened.

       The XCloseIM function closes the specified input method.

       The XSetIMValues function presents a variable argument list programming interface for set-
       ting attributes of the specified input method.  It 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 argument; all arguments in the
       list preceding the failed argument have been set correctly.

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

       Each XIM value argument (following a name) must point to a location where the XIM value is
       to be stored.  That is, if the XIM value is of type T, the argument must be of type T*.
       If T itself is a pointer type, then XGetIMValues allocates memory to store the actual
       data, and the client is responsible for freeing this data by calling XFree with the
       returned pointer.

       The XDisplayOfIM function returns the display associated with the specified input method.

       The XLocaleOfIM function returns the locale associated with the specified input method.

       The XRegisterIMInstantiateCallback function registers a callback to be invoked whenever a
       new input method becomes available for the specified display that matches the current
       locale and modifiers.

       The function returns True if it succeeds; otherwise, it returns False.

       The XUnregisterIMInstantiateCallback function removes an input method instantiation call-
       back previously registered.  The function returns True if it succeeds; otherwise, it
       returns False.
