NAME

       XmCvtXmStringToCT — A compound string function that converts a compound string to compound
       text

SYNOPSIS

       #include <Xm/Xm.h>
       char * XmCvtXmStringToCT(
       XmString string);

DESCRIPTION

       XmCvtXmStringToCT converts a compound string to a (char *) string in compound text format.
       The  application  must  call  XtAppInitialize before calling this function.  The converter
       uses the font list tag associated with  a  given  compound  string  segment  to  select  a
       compound  text  format  for  that segment.  A registry defines a mapping between font list
       tags and compound text encoding formats.  The converter uses the following  algorithm  for
       each compound string segment:

          1. If  the  compound  string  segment  tag  is  mapped to XmFONTLIST_DEFAULT_TAG in the
             registry,  the  converter  passes  the  text  of  the  compound  string  segment  to
             XmbTextListToTextProperty  with an encoding style of XCompoundTextStyle and uses the
             resulting compound text for that segment.

          2. If the compound string segment tag is mapped to an MIT  registered  charset  in  the
             registry, the converter creates the compound text for that segment using the charset
             (from the registry) and the text of the compound string segment as defined in the  X
             Consortium Standard Compound Text Encoding.

          3. If  the  compound  string segment tag is mapped to a charset in the registry that is
             neither XmFONTLIST_DEFAULT_TAG nor an MIT registered charset, the converter  creates
             the  compound  text  for  that segment using the charset (from the registry) and the
             text of the compound string segment as an "extended segment" with a variable  number
             of octets per character.

          4. If  the  compound  string  segment  tag is not mapped in the registry, the result is
             implementation dependent.

       string    Specifies a compound string to be converted to compound text.

RETURN

       Returns a (char *) string in compound text format.  This format  is  described  in  the  X
       Consortium  Standard  Compound  Text  Encoding.   The function allocates space to hold the
       returned string.  The application is responsible for managing the  allocated  space.   The
       application can recover the allocated space by calling XtFree.
