     void XtConvert(Widget w, String from_type, XrmValuePtr from,
          String to_type, XrmValuePtr to_return);

     void XtDirectConvert(XtConverter converter, XrmValuePtr
          args, Cardinal num_args, XrmValuePtr from, XrmValuePtr


     the conversion (often NULL)

     args      Specifies the argument list that contains the
               additional arguments needed to perform.

     converter Specifies the conversion procedure that is to be

     from      Specifies the value to be converted.

     from_type Specifies the source type.

     num_args  Specifies the number of additional arguments
               (often zero).

     to_type   Specifies the destination type.

     to_return Returns the converted value.

     w         Specifies the widget to use for additional argu-
               ments (if any are needed).


     The XtConvert function looks up the type converter
     registered to convert from_type to to_type, computes any
     additional arguments needed, and then calls XtDirectConvert.
     XtConvert has been replaced by XtConvertAndStore.

     The XtDirectConvert function looks in the converter cache to
     see if this conversion procedure has been called with the
     specified arguments. If so, it returns a descriptor for
     information stored in the cache; otherwise, it calls the
     converter and enters the result in the cache.

     Before calling the specified converter, XtDirectConvert sets
     the return value size to zero and the return value address
     to NULL. To determine if the conversion was successful, the
     client should check to_return.address for non-NULL.
     XtDirectConvert has been replaced by XtCallConverter.
