NAME [Toc] [Back]
XmParseTable - Data type for a compound string parse table
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
XmParseTable is the data type for an array of parse mappings (objects
of type XmParseMapping).
A parse table is used by some routines that parse and unparse compound
strings. The table is an ordered list of parse mappings. A parsing
routine that uses a parse table scans the input text and searches the
parse mappings, in order, for one containing a pattern that matches
the input text. The matching parse mapping supplies a compound string
to be included in the compound string under construction.
An unparsing routine that uses a parse table searches the parse
mappings, in order, for one containing a compound string that matches
the input compound string. The unparsing routine can then include the
parse mapping's text pattern in the output text under construction.
