       XtGetSubvalues, XtVaGetSubvalues - obtain and set widget resources

SYNTAX
       void XtSetValues(Widget w, ArgList args, Cardinal num_args);

       void XtVaSetValues(Widget w, ...);

       void XtSetSubvalues(XtPointer base, XtResourceList resources, Cardinal num_resources,
	      ArgList args, Cardinal num_args);

       void XtVaSetSubvalues(XtPointer base, XtResourceList resources, Cardinal num_resources,
	      ...);

       void XtGetValues(Widget w, ArgList args, Cardinal num_args);

       void XtVaGetValues(Widget w, ...);

       void XtGetSubvalues(XtPointer base, XtResourceList resources, Cardinal num_resources,
	      ArgList args, Cardinal num_args);

       void XtVaGetSubvalues(XtPointer base, XtResourceList resources, Cardinal num_resources,
	      ...);

ARGUMENTS
       args	 Specifies the argument list of name/address pairs that contain the resource name
		 and either the address into which the resource value is to be stored or their
		 new values.

       base	 Specifies the base address of the subpart data structure where the resources
		 should be retrieved or written.

       num_args  Specifies the number of arguments in the argument list.

       resources Specifies the nonwidget resource list or values.

       num_resources
		 Specifies the number of resources in the resource list.

       w	 Specifies the widget.

       ...	 Specifies the variable argument list of name/address pairs that contain the
		 resource name and either the address into which the resource value is to be
		 stored or their new values.

DESCRIPTION
       The XtSetValues function starts with the resources specified for the Core widget fields
       and proceeds down the subclass chain to the widget.  At each stage, it writes the new
       value (if specified by one of the arguments) or the existing value (if no new value is
       specified) to a new widget data record.	XtSetValues then calls the set_values procedures
       for the widget in superclass-to-subclass order.	If the widget has any non-NULL set_val-
       ues_hook fields, these are called immediately after the corresponding set_values proce-
       dure.  This procedure permits subclasses to set nonwidget data for XtSetValues.

       If the widget's parent is a subclass of constraintWidgetClass, XtSetValues also updates
       the widget's constraints.  It starts with the constraint resources specified for
       constraintWidgetClass and proceeds down the subclass chain to the parent's class.  At each
       stage, it writes the new value or the existing value to a new constraint record.  It then
       calls the constraint set_values procedures from constraintWidgetClass down to the parent's
       class.  The constraint set_values procedures are called with widget arguments, as for all
       set_values procedures, not just the constraint record arguments, so that they can make
       adjustments to the desired values based on full information about the widget.

       XtSetValues determines if a geometry request is needed by comparing the current widget to
       the new widget.	If any geometry changes are required, it makes the request, and the geom-
       etry manager returns XtGeometryYes, XtGeometryAlmost, or XtGeometryNo.  If XtGeometryYes,
       XtSetValues calls the widget's resize procedure.  If XtGeometryNo, XtSetValues resets the
       geometry fields to their original values.  If XtGeometryAlmost, XtSetValues calls the
       set_values_almost procedure, which determines what should be done and writes new values
       for the geometry fields into the new widget.  XtSetValues then repeats this process,
       deciding once more whether the geometry manager should be called.

       Finally, if any of the set_values procedures returned True, XtSetValues causes the wid-
       get's expose procedure to be invoked by calling the Xlib XClearArea function on the wid-
       get's window.

       The XtSetSubvalues function stores resources into the structure identified by base.

       The XtGetValues function starts with the resources specified for the core widget fields
       and proceeds down the subclass chain to the widget.  The value field of a passed argument
       list should contain the address into which to store the corresponding resource value.  It
       is the caller's responsibility to allocate and deallocate this storage according to the
       size of the resource representation type used within the widget.

       If the widget's parent is a subclass of constraintWidgetClass, XtGetValues then fetches
       the values for any constraint resources requested.  It starts with the constraint
       resources specified for constraintWidgetClass and proceeds down to the subclass chain to
       the parent's constraint resources.  If the argument list contains a resource name that is
       not found in any of the resource lists searched, the value at the corresponding address is
       not modified.  Finally, if the get_values_hook procedures are non-NULL, they are called in
       superclass-to-subclass order after all the resource values have been fetched by XtGet-
       Values.	This permits a subclass to provide nonwidget resource data to XtGetValues.

       The XtGetSubvalues function obtains resource values from the structure identified by base.
