NAME
       XAddHost, XAddHosts, XListHosts,	XRemoveHost, XRemoveHosts, XSetAccess-
       Control,	 XEnableAccessControl,	XDisableAccessControl,	 XHostAddress,
       XServerInterpretedAddress - control host	access and host	control	struc-
       ture

SYNTAX
       int XAddHost(Display *display, XHostAddress *host);

       int XAddHosts(Display *display, XHostAddress *hosts, int	num_hosts);

       XHostAddress *XListHosts(Display	 *display,  int	 *nhosts_return,  Bool
	      *state_return);

       int XRemoveHost(Display *display, XHostAddress *host);

       int XRemoveHosts(Display	*display, XHostAddress *hosts, int num_hosts);

       int XSetAccessControl(Display *display, int mode);

       int XEnableAccessControl(Display	*display);

       int XDisableAccessControl(Display *display);

ARGUMENTS
       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       host	 Specifies the host that is to be added	or removed.

       hosts	 Specifies each	host that is to	be added or removed.

       mode	 Specifies  the	mode.  You can pass EnableAccess or DisableAc-
		 cess.

       nhosts_return
		 Returns the number of hosts currently in the  access  control
		 list.

       num_hosts Specifies the number of hosts.

       state_return
		 Returns the state of the access control.

DESCRIPTION
       The  XAddHost  function	adds  the specified host to the	access control
       list for	that display.  The server must be on  the  same	 host  as  the
       client issuing the command, or a	BadAccess error	results.

       XAddHost	can generate BadAccess and BadValue errors.

       The  XAddHosts  function	adds each specified host to the	access control
       list for	that display.  The server must be on  the  same	 host  as  the
       client issuing the command, or a	BadAccess error	results.

       XAddHosts can generate BadAccess	and BadValue errors.

       The XListHosts function returns the current access control list as well
       as whether the use of the list at connection setup was enabled or  dis-
       abled.	XListHosts allows a program to find out	what machines can make
       connections.  It	also returns a pointer to a list  of  host  structures
       that  were allocated by the function.  When no longer needed, this mem-
       ory should be freed by calling XFree.

       The XRemoveHost function	removes	the specified  host  from  the	access
       control	list for that display.	The server must	be on the same host as
       the client process, or a	BadAccess error	results.  If you  remove  your
       machine from the	access list, you can no	longer connect to that server,
       and this	operation cannot be reversed unless you	reset the server.

       XRemoveHost can generate	BadAccess and BadValue errors.

       The XRemoveHosts	function removes each specified	host from  the	access
       control	list  for that display.	 The X server must be on the same host
       as the client process, or a BadAccess error  results.   If  you	remove
       your  machine  from  the	access list, you can no	longer connect to that
       server, and this	operation cannot be  reversed  unless  you  reset  the
       server.

       XRemoveHosts can	generate BadAccess and BadValue	errors.

       The  XSetAccessControl  function	 either	enables	or disables the	use of
       the access control list at each connection setup.

       XSetAccessControl can generate BadAccess	and BadValue errors.

       The XEnableAccessControl	function enables the use of the	access control
       list at each connection setup.

       XEnableAccessControl can	generate a BadAccess error.

       The  XDisableAccessControl function disables the	use of the access con-
       trol list at each connection setup.

       XDisableAccessControl can generate a BadAccess error.

STRUCTURES
       The XHostAddress	structure contains:

       typedef struct {
	       int family;     /* for example FamilyInternet */
	       int length;     /* length of address, in	bytes */
	       char *address;  /* pointer to where to find the address */
       } XHostAddress;

       The family member specifies which protocol address family to  use  (for
       example,	 TCP/IP	or DECnet) and can be FamilyInternet, FamilyInternet6,
       FamilyServerInterpreted,	FamilyDECnet, or FamilyChaos.  The length mem-
       ber  specifies  the length of the address in bytes.  The	address	member
       specifies a pointer to the address.

       For the ServerInterpreted family, the length is ignored and the address
       member is a pointer to a	XServerInterpretedAddress structure which con-
       tains:

       typedef struct {
	       int typelength;	       /* length of type string, in bytes */
	       int valuelength;	       /* length of value string, in bytes */
	       char *type;	       /* pointer to where to find the type string */
	       char *value;	       /* pointer to where to find the address */
       } XServerInterpretedAddress;

       The type	and value members point	to strings representing	the  type  and
       value  of the server interpreted	entry.	These strings may not be NULL-
       terminated so care should be used when accessing	them.  The  typelength
       and  valuelength	 members  specify  the	length in byte of the type and
       value strings.

DIAGNOSTICS
       BadAccess A client attempted to modify the  access  control  list  from
		 other than the	local (or otherwise authorized)	host.

       BadValue	 Some numeric value falls outside the range of values accepted
		 by the	request.  Unless a specific range is specified for  an
		 argument,  the	 full  range defined by	the argument's type is
		 accepted.  Any	argument defined as a set of alternatives  can
		 generate this error.
