     argc      Specifies a pointer to the number of command line

     argv      Specifies the command line parameters.

               Specifies the application context.

               Specifies the class name of this application,
               which usually is the generic name for all
               instances of this application.

               Specifies the name of the application instance.

     display   Specifies the display. Note that a display can be
               in at most one application context.

               Specifies the number of entries in the options

     options   Specifies how to parse the command line for any
               application-specific resources. The options argu-
               ment is passed as a parameter to XrmParseCommand.

     screen    Specifies the screen whose resource database is to
               be returned.


     The XtDisplayInitialize function builds the resource data-
     base, calls the Xlib XrmParseCommand function to parse the
     command line, and performs other per display initialization.
     After XrmParseCommand has been called, argc and argv contain
     only those parameters that were not in the standard option
     table or in the table specified by the options argument. If
     the modified argc is not zero, most applications simply
     print out the modified argv along with a message listing the
     allowable options. On UNIX-based systems, the application
     name is usually the final component of argv[0]. If the syn-
     chronize resource is True for the specified application,
     XtDisplayInitialize calls the Xlib XSynchronize function to
     put Xlib into synchronous mode for this display connection.
     If the reverseVideo resource is True, the Intrinsics
     exchange XtDefaultForeground and XtDefaultBackground for
     widgets created on this display. (See Section 9.6.1).

     The XtOpenDisplay function calls XOpenDisplay the specified
     display name. If display_string is NULL, XtOpenDisplay uses
     the current value of the -display option specified in argv
     and if no display is specified in argv, uses the user's
     default display (on UNIX-based systems, this is the value of
     the DISPLAY environment variable).

     If this succeeds, it then calls XtDisplayInitialize and pass
     it the opened display and the value of the -name option
     specified in argv as the application name. If no name option
     is specified, it uses the application name passed to XtOpen-
     Display. If the application name is NULL, it uses the last
     component of argv[0]. XtOpenDisplay returns the newly opened
     display or NULL if it failed.

     XtOpenDisplay is provided as a convenience to the applica-
     tion programmer.

     The XtCloseDisplay function closes the specified display as
     soon as it is safe to do so. If called from within an event
     dispatch (for example, a callback procedure), XtCloseDisplay
     does not close the display until the dispatch is complete.
     Note that applications need only call XtCloseDisplay if they
     are to continue executing after closing the display; other-
     wise, they should call XtDestroyApplicationContext or just

     The XtDatabase function returns the fully merged resource
     database that was built by XtDisplayInitialize associated
     with the display that was passed in. If this display has not
     been initialized by XtDisplayInitialize, the results are not

     The XtScreenDatabase function returns the fully merged
     resource database associated with the specified screen. If
     the screen does not belong to a Display initilized by
     XtDisplayInitialize, the results are undefined.
