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.
