       XmStringGetNextComponent  —  A compound string function that returns the type and value of
       the next component  in  a  compound  string  "XmStringGetNextComponent"  "compound  string
       functions" "XmStringGetNextComponent"


       #include <Xm/Xm.h>
       XmStringComponentType XmStringGetNextComponent(
       XmStringContext context,
       char **text,
       XmStringTag *tag,
       XmStringDirection *direction,
       XmStringComponentType *unknown_tag,
       unsigned short *unknown_length,
       unsigned char **unknown_value);


       This  function  is  obsolete  and  exists  for compatibility with previous releases. It is
       replaced by XmStringGetNextTriple.  XmStringGetNextComponent returns the type and value of
       the  next component in the compound string identified by context.  Components are returned
       one at a time. On return, only some output parameters will be valid;  which  ones  can  be
       determined  by  examining  the returned component type.  The following table describes the
       valid returns for each component type.

       Note  that  several  components  produce a return value of XmSTRING_COMPONENT_UNKNOWN. The
       data returned by these components is returned  in  the  unknown_tag,  unknown_length,  and
       unknown_value  fields.  This  apparent  inconsistency  is  designed  to  accommodate older
       applications that may not be equipped to handle the newer component types of Motif version
       2.0  and beyond.  Consequently, the use of this procedure is not recommended. Instead, use
       the  XmStringGetNextTriple  procedure,   which   provides   all   the   functionality   of
       XmStringGetNextComponent, and is fully compatible with the newer component types.

       If the function return value is XmSTRING_COMPONENT_LOCALE_TEXT or XmSTRING_COMPONENT_TEXT,
       the the function allocates space to hold the returned text.  If the function return  value
       allocates space to hold the returned tag.  The application is responsible for managing the
       allocated space.  The application can recover the allocated space by calling XtFree.

       context   Specifies   the   string   context   structure   that   was   allocated  by  the
                 XmStringInitContext function.

       text      Specifies a pointer to a NULL terminated string.

       tag       Specifies a pointer to the tag component associated with  the  text.  The  value
                 XmFONTLIST_DEFAULT_TAG identifies a locale text segment.

       direction Specifies a pointer to the direction of the text.

                 Specifies a pointer to the tag of an unknown component.

                 Specifies a pointer to the length of an unknown component.

                 Specifies a pointer to the value of an unknown component.


       Returns the type of component found.  Refer to the XmStringComponentType(3) reference page
       for a list of component types.
