SYNTAX
       int	  XFontsOfFontSet(XFontSet	  font_set,	   XFontStruct
	      ***font_struct_list_return, char ***font_name_list_return);

       char *XBaseFontNameListOfFontSet(XFontSet font_set);

       Bool XContextDependentDrawing(XFontSet font_set);

       Bool XContextualDrawing(XFontSet	font_set);

       Bool XDirectionalDependentDrawing(XFontSet font_set);

ARGUMENTS
       font_set	 Specifies the font set.

       font_name_list_return
		 Returns the list of font names.

       font_struct_list_return
		 Returns the list of font structs.

DESCRIPTION
       The XFontsOfFontSet function returns a list of one or more XFontStructs
       and  font  names	 for  the fonts	used by	the Xmb	and Xwc	layers for the
       given font set.	A list of pointers to the  XFontStruct	structures  is
       returned	to font_struct_list_return.  A list of pointers	to null-termi-
       nated, fully specified font name	strings	in the locale of the font  set
       is  returned to font_name_list_return.  The font_name_list order	corre-
       sponds to the font_struct_list order.  The number of XFontStruct	struc-
       tures and font names is returned	as the value of	the function.

       Because	it is not guaranteed that a given character will be imaged us-
       ing a single font glyph,	there is no provision for mapping a  character
       or  default  string  to the font	properties, font ID, or	direction hint
       for the font for	the character.	The client may access the  XFontStruct
       list to obtain these values for all the fonts currently in use.

       Xlib  does  not	guarantee that fonts are loaded	from the server	at the
       creation	of an XFontSet.	 Xlib may choose to cache font	data,  loading
       it  only	as needed to draw text or compute text dimensions.  Therefore,
       existence of the	per_char metrics in the	XFontStruct structures in  the
       XFontStructSet  is  undefined.	Also,  note that all properties	in the
       XFontStruct structures are in the STRING	encoding.

       The XFontStruct and font	name lists are owned by	Xlib and should	not be
       modified	 or  freed  by	the  client.   They will be freed by a call to
       XFreeFontSet with the associated	XFontSet.  Until freed,	their contents
       will not	be modified by Xlib.

       The  XBaseFontNameListOfFontSet function	returns	the original base font
       name list supplied by the client	when  the  XFontSet  was  created.   A
       null-terminated	string containing a list of comma-separated font names
       is returned as the value	of the function.  White	space may appear imme-
       diately on either side of separating commas.

       If  XCreateFontSet  obtained  an	XLFD name from the font	properties for
       the font	specified by a non-XLFD	base  name,  the  XBaseFontNameListOf-
       FontSet function	will return the	XLFD name instead of the non-XLFD base
       name.

       The base	font name list is owned	by Xlib	and should not be modified  or
       freed  by  the client.  It will be freed	by a call to XFreeFontSet with
       the associated XFontSet.	 Until freed, its contents will	not  be	 modi-
       fied by Xlib.

       The  XLocaleOfFontSet  function returns the name	of the locale bound to
       the specified XFontSet, as a null-terminated string.

       The returned locale name	string is owned	by Xlib	and should not be mod-
       ified  or  freed	 by  the  client.  It may be freed by a	call to	XFree-
       FontSet with the	associated XFontSet.  Until freed, it will not be mod-
       ified by	Xlib.

       The XContextDependentDrawing function returns True if the drawing func-
       tions implement implicit	text directionality or if text drawn with  the
       font_set	might include context-dependent	drawing; otherwise, it returns
       False.

       The XContextualDrawing function returns True if	text  drawn  with  the
       font set	might include context-dependent	drawing; otherwise, it returns
       False.

       The XDirectionalDependentDrawing	function returns True if  the  drawing
       functions implement implicit text directionality; otherwise, it returns
       False.
