NAME

     XOpenOM, XCloseOM, XSetOMValues, XGetOMValues, XDisplayOfOM,

     Status XCloseOM(XOM om);

     char *XSetOMValues(XOM om);

ARGUMENTS

     display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

     db        Specifies a pointer to the resource database.

     res_name  Specifies the full resource name of the applica-
               tion.

     res_class Specifies the full class name of the application.

     om        Specifies the output method.

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

DESCRIPTION

     The XOpenOM function opens an output method matching the
     current locale and modifiers specification. The current
     locale and modifiers are bound to the output method when
     XOpenOM is called. The locale associated with an output
     method cannot be changed.

     The specific output method to which this call will be routed
     is identified on the basis of the current locale and modif-
     iers. XOpenOM will identify a default output method
     corresponding to the current locale. That default can be
     modified using XSetLocaleModifiers to set the output method
     modifier.

     The db argument is the resource database to be used by the
     output method for looking up resources that are private to
     the output method. It is not intended that this database be
     used to look up values that can be set as OC values in an
     output context. If db is NULL, no database is passed to the

XFree86                   Version 4.5.0                         1

     output method.

     The res_name and res_class arguments specify the resource
     name and class of the application. They are intended to be
     used as prefixes by the output method when looking up
     resources that are common to all output contexts that may be
     created for this output method. The characters used for
     resource names and classes must be in the X Portable Charac-
     ter 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 XOpenOM. The specified resource
     database is assumed to exist for the lifetime of the output
     method.

     XOpenOM returns NULL if no output method could be opened.

     The XCloseOM function closes the specified output method.

     The XSetOMValues function presents a variable argument list
     programming interface for setting properties or features of
     the specified output method. This function 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.

     No standard arguments are currently defined by Xlib.

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

     The XDisplayOfOM function returns the display associated
     with the specified output method.

     The XLocaleOfOM returns the locale associated with the
     specified output method.
