     XrmInitialize, XrmParseCommand, XrmValue, XrmOptionKind,
     XrmOptionDescRec - initialize the Resource Manager, Resource
     Manager structures, and parse the command line

     void XrmParseCommand(XrmDatabase *database, XrmOptionDes-

               Specifies the number of arguments and returns the
               number of remaining arguments.

               Specifies the command line arguments and returns
               the remaining arguments.

     database  Specifies the resource database.

     name      Specifies the application name.

     table     Specifies the table of command line arguments to
               be parsed.

               Specifies the number of entries in the table.


     The XrmInitialize function initialize the resource manager.
     It must be called before any other Xrm functions are used.

     The XrmParseCommand function parses an (argc, argv) pair
     according to the specified option table, loads recognized
     options into the specified database with type ``String,''
     and modifies the (argc, argv) pair to remove all recognized
     options. If database contains NULL, XrmParseCommand creates
     a new database and returns a pointer to it. Otherwise,
     entries are added to the database specified. If a database
     is created, it is created in the current locale.

     The specified table is used to parse the command line.
     Recognized options in the table are removed from argv, and
     entries are added to the specified resource database in the
     order they occur in argv. The table entries contain informa-
     tion on the option string, the option name, the style of
     option, and a value to provide if the option kind is Xrmop-
     tionNoArg. The option names are compared byte-for-byte to
     arguments in argv, independent of any locale. The resource

     values given in the table are stored in the resource data-
     base without modification. All resource database entries are
     created using a ``String'' representation type. The argc
     argument specifies the number of arguments in argv and is
     set on return to the remaining number of arguments that were
     not parsed. The name argument should be the name of your
     application for use in building the database entry. The name
     argument is prefixed to the resourceName in the option table
     before storing a database entry. The name argument is
     treated as a single component, even if it has embedded
     periods. No separating (binding) character is inserted, so
     the table must contain either a period (.) or an asterisk
     (*) as the first character in each resourceName entry. To
     specify a more completely qualified resource name, the
     resourceName entry can contain multiple components. If the
     name argument and the resourceNames are not in the Host
     Portable Character Encoding, the result is implementation-
