   void XrmParseCommand(XrmDatabase *database, XrmOptionDescList table,
          int table_count, char *name, int *argc_in_out, char


             Specifies the number of arguments and returns the number of
             remaining arguments.

             Specifies the command line arguments and returns the
             remaining arguments.

   database  Specifies the resource database.

   name      Specifies the application name.

   table     Specifies the table of command line arguments to be parsed.

             Specifies the number of entries in the table.


   The XrmInitialize function initialize the resource manager.  It must be
   called before any other Xrm functions are used.

   The XrmParseCommand function parses an (argc, argv) pair according to
   the specified option table, loads recognized options into the specified
   database with type ``String,'' and modifies the (argc, argv) pair to
   remove all recognized options.  If database contains NULL,
   XrmParseCommand creates a new database and returns a pointer to it.
   Otherwise, entries are added to the database specified.  If a database
   is created, it is created in the current locale.

   The specified table is used to parse the command line.  Recognized
   options in the table are removed from argv, and entries are added to
   the specified resource database in the order they occur in argv.  The
   table entries contain information on the option string, the option
   name, the style of option, and a value to provide if the option kind is
   XrmoptionNoArg.  The option names are compared byte-for-byte to
   arguments in argv, independent of any locale.  The resource values
   given in the table are stored in the resource database without
   modification.  All resource database entries are created using a
   ``String'' representation type.  The argc argument specifies the number
   of arguments in argv and is set on return to the remaining number of
   arguments that were not parsed.  The name argument should be the name
   of your application for use in building the database entry.  The name
   argument is prefixed to the resourceName in the option table before
   storing a database entry.  The name argument is treated as a single
   component, even if it has embedded periods.  No separating (binding)
   character is inserted, so the table must contain either a period (.) or
   an asterisk (*) as the first character in each resourceName entry.  To
   specify a more completely qualified resource name, the resourceName
   entry can contain multiple components.  If the name argument and the
   resourceNames are not in the Host Portable Character Encoding, the
   result is implementation-dependent.


   The XrmValue, XrmOptionKind, and XrmOptionDescRec structures contain:

   typedef struct {
           unsigned int size;
           XPointer addr;
   } XrmValue, *XrmValuePtr;

   typedef enum {
           XrmoptionNoArg, /* Value is specified in XrmOptionDescRec.value */
           XrmoptionIsArg, /* Value is the option string itself */
           XrmoptionStickyArg,     /* Value is characters immediately following option */
           XrmoptionSepArg,        /* Value is next argument in argv */
           XrmoptionResArg,        /* Resource and value in next argument in argv */
           XrmoptionSkipArg,       /* Ignore this option and the next argument in argv */
           XrmoptionSkipLine,      /* Ignore this option and the rest of argv */
           XrmoptionSkipNArgs      /* Ignore this option and the next
                      XrmOptionDescRec.value arguments in argv */
   } XrmOptionKind;

   typedef struct {
           char *option;   /* Option specification string in argv                    */
           char *specifier;        /* Binding and resource name (sans application name)    */
           XrmOptionKind argKind;  /* Which style of option it is            */
           XPointer value; /* Value to provide if XrmoptionNoArg or
                      XrmoptionSkipNArgs   */
   } XrmOptionDescRec, *XrmOptionDescList;
