DESCRIPTION

       The XmbTextListToTextProperty, XwcTextListToTextProperty and Xutf8TextListToTextProperty
       functions set the specified XTextProperty value to a set of null-separated elements
       representing the concatenation of the specified list of null-terminated text strings. The
       input text strings must be given in the current locale encoding (for
       XmbTextListToTextProperty and XwcTextListToTextProperty), or in UTF-8 encoding (for
       Xutf8TextListToTextProperty).

       The functions set the encoding field of text_prop_return to an Atom for the specified
       display naming the encoding determined by the specified style and convert the specified
       text list to this encoding for storage in the text_prop_return value field.  If the style
       XStringStyle or XCompoundTextStyle is specified, this encoding is ``STRING'' or
       ``COMPOUND_TEXT'', respectively.  If the style XUTF8StringStyle is specified, this
       encoding is ``UTF8_STRING''.  (This is an extension introduced by The XFree86 Project,
       Inc. in their 4.0.2 release. Its presence is indicated by the macro X_HAVE_UTF8_STRING.)
       If the style XTextStyle is specified, this encoding is the encoding of the current locale.
       If the style XStdICCTextStyle is specified, this encoding is ``STRING'' if the text is
       fully convertible to STRING, else ``COMPOUND_TEXT''.  A final terminating null byte is
       stored at the end of the value field of text_prop_return but is not included in the nitems
       member.

       If insufficient memory is available for the new value string, the functions return
       XNoMemory.  If the current locale is not supported, the functions return
       XLocaleNotSupported.  In both of these error cases, the functions do not set
       text_prop_return.

       To determine if the functions are guaranteed not to return XLocaleNotSupported, use
       XSupportsLocale.

       If the supplied text is not fully convertible to the specified encoding, the functions
       return the number of unconvertible characters.  Each unconvertible character is converted
       to an implementation-defined and encoding-specific default string.  Otherwise, the
       functions return Success.  Note that full convertibility to all styles except XStringStyle
       is guaranteed.

       To free the storage for the value field, use XFree.

       The XmbTextPropertyToTextList, XwcTextPropertyToTextList and Xutf8TextPropertyToTextList
       functions return a list of text strings representing the null-separated elements of the
       specified XTextProperty structure. The returned strings are encoded using the current
       locale encoding (for XmbTextPropertyToTextList and XwcTextPropertyToTextList) or in UTF-8
       (for Xutf8TextPropertyToTextList).  The data in text_prop must be format 8.

       Multiple elements of the property (for example, the strings in a disjoint text selection)
       are separated by a null byte.  The contents of the property are not required to be null-
       terminated; any terminating null should not be included in text_prop.nitems.

       If insufficient memory is available for the list and its elements,
       XmbTextPropertyToTextList, XwcTextPropertyToTextList and Xutf8TextPropertyToTextList
       return XNoMemory.  If the current locale is not supported, the functions return
       XLocaleNotSupported.  Otherwise, if the encoding field of text_prop is not convertible to
       the encoding of the current locale, the functions return XConverterNotFound.  For
       supported locales, existence of a converter from COMPOUND_TEXT, STRING, UTF8_STRING or the
       encoding of the current locale is guaranteed if XSupportsLocale returns True for the
       current locale (but the actual text may contain unconvertible characters).  Conversion of
       other encodings is implementation-dependent.  In all of these error cases, the functions
       do not set any return values.

       Otherwise, XmbTextPropertyToTextList, XwcTextPropertyToTextList and
       Xutf8TextPropertyToTextList return the list of null-terminated text strings to list_return
       and the number of text strings to count_return.

       If the value field of text_prop is not fully convertible to the encoding of the current
       locale, the functions return the number of unconvertible characters.  Each unconvertible
       character is converted to a string in the current locale that is specific to the current
       locale.  To obtain the value of this string, use XDefaultString.  Otherwise,
       XmbTextPropertyToTextList, XwcTextPropertyToTextList and Xutf8TextPropertyToTextList
       return Success.

       To free the storage for the list and its contents returned by XmbTextPropertyToTextList or
       Xutf8TextPropertyToTextList, use XFreeStringList.  To free the storage for the list and
       its contents returned by XwcTextPropertyToTextList, use XwcFreeStringList.

       The XwcFreeStringList function frees memory allocated by XwcTextPropertyToTextList.

       The XDefaultString function returns the default string used by Xlib for text conversion
       (for example, in XmbTextPropertyToTextList).  The default string is the string in the
       current locale that is output when an unconvertible character is found during text
       conversion.  If the string returned by XDefaultString is the empty string (""), no
       character is output in the converted text.  XDefaultString does not return NULL.

       The string returned by XDefaultString is independent of the default string for text
       drawing; see XCreateFontSet to obtain the default string for an XFontSet.

       The behavior when an invalid codepoint is supplied to any Xlib function is undefined.

       The returned string is null-terminated.  It is owned by Xlib and should not be modified or
       freed by the client.  It may be freed after the current locale is changed.  Until freed,
       it will not be modified by Xlib.

       The functions Xutf8TextListToTextProperty and Xutf8TextPropertyToTextList are extensions
       introduced by The XFree86 Project, Inc. in their 4.0.2 release. Their presence is
       indicated by the macro X_HAVE_UTF8_STRING.

STRUCTURES

       The XTextProperty structure contains:

       typedef struct {
            unsigned char *value;/* property data */
            Atom encoding;      /* type of property */
            int format;         /* 8, 16, or 32 */
            unsigned long nitems;/* number of items in value */
       } XTextProperty;

       The XICCEncodingStyle structure contains:

       #define   XNoMemory              -1
       #define   XLocaleNotSupported    -2
       #define   XConverterNotFound     -3
       typedef enum {
            XStringStyle,       /* STRING */
            XCompoundTextStyle, /* COMPOUND_TEXT */
            XTextStyle,         /* text in owner's encoding (current locale) */
            XStdICCTextStyle,   /* STRING, else COMPOUND_TEXT */
            XUTF8StringStyle    /* UTF8_STRING */
       } XICCEncodingStyle;
