NAME [Toc] [Back]
XmCvtXmStringToByteStream - A compound string function that converts a
compound string to a Byte Stream format
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
unsigned int XmCvtXmStringToByteStream(
unsigned char **prop_return);
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
XmCvtXmStringToByteStream converts a compound string to a string of
bytes representing the compound string in Byte Stream format. This
routine is typically used by the source of a data transfer operation
to produce a Byte Stream representation for transferring a compound
string to a destination.
If prop_return is not NULL, this function creates a string of
characters in Byte Stream format and returns it in prop_return. The
function also returns the number of bytes in prop_return. If
prop_return is NULL, the function does not return the Byte Stream
format string, but it does calculate and return the number of bytes
that would appear in the Byte Stream format string.
string Specifies a compound string to be converted to Byte Stream
Specifies a pointer to a string in Byte Stream format that
is created and returned by this function. If prop_return is
NULL, no Byte Stream format string is returned. When a Byte
Stream format string is returned, the function allocates
space to hold it. The application is responsible for
managing this allocated space. The application can recover
the allocated space by calling XtFree.
RETURN [Toc] [Back]
Returns the number of bytes in the Byte Stream representation (whether
or not the Byte Stream representation is returned).
