X11R7.4 - man page for xsetclosedownmode (x11r4 section 3)

XSetCloseDownMode(3)			  XLIB FUNCTIONS		     XSetCloseDownMode(3)

NAME
       XSetCloseDownMode, XKillClient - control clients

SYNTAX
       int XSetCloseDownMode(Display *display, int close_mode);

       int XKillClient(Display *display, XID resource);

ARGUMENTS
       close_mode
		 Specifies the client close-down mode.	You can pass DestroyAll, RetainPermanent,
		 or RetainTemporary.

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       resource  Specifies any resource associated with the client that you want to destroy or
		 AllTemporary.

DESCRIPTION
       The XSetCloseDownMode defines what will happen to the client's resources at connection
       close.  A connection starts in DestroyAll mode.	For information on what happens to the
       client's resources when the close_mode argument is RetainPermanent or RetainTemporary, see
       section 2.6.

       XSetCloseDownMode can generate a BadValue error.

       The XKillClient function forces a close down of the client that created the resource if a
       valid resource is specified.  If the client has already terminated in either RetainPerma-
       nent or RetainTemporary mode, all of the client's resources are destroyed.  If AllTempo-
       rary is specified, the resources of all clients that have terminated in RetainTemporary
       are destroyed (see section 2.5).  This permits implementation of window manager facilities
       that aid debugging.  A client can set its close-down mode to RetainTemporary.  If the
       client then crashes, its windows would not be destroyed.  The programmer can then inspect
       the application's window tree and use the window manager to destroy the zombie windows.

       XKillClient can generate a BadValue error.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadValue  Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted by the request.
		 Unless a specific range is specified for an argument, the full range defined by
		 the argument's type is accepted.  Any argument defined as a set of alternatives
		 can generate this error.
