XQueryTree(3)				  XLIB FUNCTIONS			    XQueryTree(3)

NAME
       XQueryTree - query window tree information

SYNTAX
       Status XQueryTree(Display *display, Window w, Window *root_return, Window *parent_return,
	      Window **children_return, unsigned int *nchildren_return);

ARGUMENTS
       children_return
		 Returns the list of children.

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       nchildren_return
		 Returns the number of children.

       parent_return
		 Returns the parent window.

       root_return
		 Returns the root window.

       w	 Specifies the window whose list of children, root, parent, and number of chil-
		 dren you want to obtain.

DESCRIPTION
       The XQueryTree function returns the root ID, the parent window ID, a pointer to the list
       of children windows (NULL when there are no children), and the number of children in the
       list for the specified window.  The children are listed in current stacking order, from
       bottom-most (first) to top-most (last).	XQueryTree returns zero if it fails and nonzero
       if it succeeds.	To free a non-NULL children list when it is no longer needed, use XFree.

BUGS
       This really should return a screen *, not a root window ID.
