XrmPutResource, XrmQPutResource, XrmPutStringResource, XrmQPutStringResource, XrmPutLineResource — store database resources

Syntax

#include <X11/Xresource.h>

void XrmPutResource(XrmDatabase *database, char *specifier, char *type, XrmValue *value);

void XrmQPutResource(XrmDatabase *database, XrmBindingList bindings, XrmQuarkList quarks, XrmRepresentation type, XrmValue *value);

void XrmPutStringResource(XrmDatabase *database, char *specifier, char *value);

void XrmQPutStringResource(XrmDatabase *database, XrmBindingList bindings, XrmQuarkList quarks, char *value);

void XrmPutLineResource(XrmDatabase *database, char *line);

Arguments

bindings

Specifies a list of bindings.

database

Specifies the resource database.

line

Specifies the resource name and value pair as a single string.

quarks

Specifies the complete or partial name or the class list of the resource.

specifier

Specifies a complete or partial specification of the resource.

type

Specifies the type of the resource.

value

Specifies the value of the resource, which is specified as a string.

Description

If database contains NULL, XrmPutResource creates a new database and returns a pointer to it. XrmPutResource is a convenience function that calls XrmStringToBindingQuarkList followed by:

XrmQPutResource(database, bindings, quarks, XrmStringToQuark(type), value)

If the specifier and type are not in the Host Portable Character Encoding, the result is implementation-dependent. The value is stored in the database without modification.

If database contains NULL, XrmQPutResource creates a new database and returns a pointer to it. If a resource entry with the identical bindings and quarks already exists in the database, the previous type and value are replaced by the new specified type and value. The value is stored in the database without modification.

If database contains NULL, XrmPutStringResource creates a new database and returns a pointer to it. XrmPutStringResource adds a resource with the specified value to the specified database. XrmPutStringResource is a convenience function that first calls XrmStringToBindingQuarkList on the specifier and then calls XrmQPutResource, using a “String” representation type. If the specifier is not in the Host Portable Character Encoding, the result is implementation-dependent. The value is stored in the database without modification.

If database contains NULL, XrmQPutStringResource creates a new database and returns a pointer to it. XrmQPutStringResource is a convenience routine that constructs an XrmValue for the value string (by calling strlen to compute the size) and then calls XrmQPutResource, using a “String” representation type. The value is stored in the database without modification.

If database contains NULL, XrmPutLineResource creates a new database and returns a pointer to it. XrmPutLineResource adds a single resource entry to the specified database. The line should be in valid ResourceLine format (see section 15.1) terminated by a newline or null character; the database that results from using a string with incorrect syntax is implementation-dependent. The string is parsed in the locale of the database. If the ResourceName is not in the Host Portable Character Encoding, the result is implementation-dependent. Note that comment lines are not stored.
