XSetCloseDownMode(3)		XLIB FUNCTIONS		  XSetCloseDownMode(3)

NAME
       XSetCloseDownMode, XKillClient -	control	clients

SYNTAX
       int XSetCloseDownMode(Display *display, int close_mode);

       int XKillClient(Display *display, XID resource);

ARGUMENTS
       close_mode
		 Specifies  the	client close-down mode.	 You can pass Destroy-
		 All, RetainPermanent, or RetainTemporary.

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       resource	 Specifies any resource	associated with	the  client  that  you
		 want to destroy or AllTemporary.

DESCRIPTION
       The  XSetCloseDownMode  defines	what  will  happen to the client's re-
       sources at connection close.  A connection starts in  DestroyAll	 mode.
       For  information	 on  what  happens  to the client's resources when the
       close_mode argument is RetainPermanent or RetainTemporary, see  section
       2.6.

       XSetCloseDownMode can generate a	BadValue error.

       The XKillClient function	forces a close down of the client that created
       the resource if a valid resource	is specified.  If the client  has  al-
       ready terminated	in either RetainPermanent or RetainTemporary mode, all
       of the client's resources are destroyed.	 If AllTemporary is specified,
       the  resources  of  all clients that have terminated in RetainTemporary
       are destroyed (see section 2.5).	 This permits implementation of	window
       manager facilities that aid debugging.  A client	can set	its close-down
       mode to RetainTemporary.	 If the	client then crashes, its windows would
       not  be	destroyed.   The programmer can	then inspect the application's
       window tree and use the window manager to destroy the zombie windows.

       XKillClient can generate	a BadValue error.

DIAGNOSTICS
       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.
