       XtResolvePathname - search for a file using standard substitution


       String XtResolvePathname(Display *display, String type, String filename, String suffix,
              String path, Substitution substitutions, Cardinal num_substitutions,
              XtFilePredicate predicate);


       display     Specifies the display to use to find the language for language substitutions.

       suffix      Specify values to substitute into the path.

       path        Specifies the list of file specifications, or NULL.

                   Specifies a list of additional substitutions to make into the path, or NULL.

                   Specifies the number of entries in substitutions.

       predicate   Specifies a procedure called to judge each potential file name, or NULL.


       The substitutions specified by XtResolvePathname are determined from the value of the
       language string retrieved by XtDisplayInitialize for the specified display.  To set the
       language for all applications specify ``*xnlLanguage: lang'' in the resource database.
       The format and content of the language string are implementation-defined.   One suggested
       syntax is to compose the language string of three parts;  a  ``language  part'',  a
       ``territory  part'' and a ``codeset part''.  The manner in which this composition is
       accomplished is implementation-defined and the Intrinsics make no interpretation of the
       parts other than to use them in substitutions as described below.

       XtResolvePathname calls XtFindFile with the following substitutions in addition to any
       passed by the caller and returns the value returned by XtFindFile:

       %N   The value of the filename parameter, or the application's class name if filename is

       %T   The value of the type parameter.

       %S   The value of the suffix parameter.

       %L   The language string associated with the specified display.

       %l   The language part of the display's language string.

       %t   The territory part of the display's language string.

       %c   The codeset part of the display's language string.

       %C   The customization string retrieved from the resource database associated with

       %D   The value of the implementation-specific default path.

       If a path is passed to XtResolvePathname, it will be passed along to XtFindFile.  If the
       path argument is NULL, the value of the XFILESEARCHPATH environment variable will be
       passed to XtFindFile.  If XFILESEARCHPATH is not defined, an implementation-specific
       default path will be used which contains at least 6 entries.  These entries must contain
       the following substitutions:

       1. %C, %N, %S, %T, %L  or  %C, %N, %S, %T, %l, %t, %c
       2. %C, %N, %S, %T, %l
       3. %C, %N, %S, %T
       4. %N, %S, %T, %L      or  %N, %S, %T, %l, %t, %c
       5. %N, %S, %T, %l
       6. %N, %S, %T

       The order of these six entries within the path must be as given above.  The order and use
       of substitutions within a given entry is implementation dependent.  If the path begins
       with a colon, it will be preceded by %N%S.  If the path includes two adjacent colons, %N%S
       will be inserted between them.

       The type parameter is intended to be a category of files, usually being translated into a
       directory in the pathname.  Possible values might include ``app-defaults'', ``help'', and

       The suffix parameter is intended to be appended to the file name.  Possible values might
       include ``.txt'', ``.dat'', and ``.bm''.

       A suggested value for the default path on POSIX-based systems is


       Using this example, if the user has specified a language, it will be used as a
       subdirectory of /usr/lib/X11 that will be searched for other files.  If the desired file
       is not found there, the lookup will be tried again using just the language part of the
       specification.  If the file is not there, it will be looked for in /usr/lib/X11.  The type
       parameter is used as a subdirectory of the language directory or of /usr/lib/X11, and
       suffix is appended to the file name.

       The %D substitution allows the addition of path elements to the implementation-specific
       default path, typically to allow additional directories to be searched without preventing
       resources in the system directories from being found.  For example, a user installing
       resource files under a directory called ``ourdir'' might set XFILESEARCHPATH to


       The customization string is obtained by querying the resource database currently
       associated with the display (the database returned by XrmGetDatabase) for the resource
       application_name.customization, class application_class.Customization where
       application_name and application_class are the values returned by
       XtGetApplicationNameAndClass.  If no value is specified in the database, the empty string
       is used.

       It is the responsibility of the caller to free the returned string using XtFree when it is
       no longer needed.
