       XpGetPdmStartParams  -  Builds up parameters in accordance with the PDM
       Selection Protocol as a standard	convenience function.

	      Specifies	a pointer to the  print	 Display  structure;  returned
	      from XOpenDisplay	on the X Print Server.

	      Specifies	 a  client window on any screen	of print_display long-
	      lived enough for ICCCM communications of the  final  PDM	status
	      ("OK" or "CANCEL"	ClientMessage) sent to print_window.

	      An existing print	context	that the PDM should reference.

	      Specifies	 a  pointer  to	 the video Display structure; returned
	      from XOpenDisplay	on the Video X-Server.

	      Specifies	the window on video_display near which	the  transient
	      dialogs from the PDM should be posted.

	      Returns the display connection on	which the PDM selection	should
	      be made. May be equal to print_display or	video_display, or  may
	      be  a  new  display connection that the caller should close when

	      Returns the selection atom for which a PDM selection  should  be

	      Returns  the  type  for  the PDM Selection Protocol property the
	      caller is	expected to create.

	      Returns the format for the PDM Selection Protocol	 property  the
	      caller is	expected to create.

	      Returns the data set for the PDM Selection Protocol property the
	      caller is	expected to create. The	caller is  expected  to	 XFree
	      the data when finished.

	      Returns  the  number  of elements	for the	PDM Selection Protocol
	      property the caller is expected to create.

       This request returns a zero status if an	error occurred,	non-zero  oth-

       XpGetPdmStartParams is a	convenience routine used to construct the nec-
       essary property information and selection display  connection  informa-
       tion  needed  to	initiate a PDM Selection per the "PDM Selection	Proto-
       col". Once the information is constructed, the  caller  is  responsible
       for  the	 creation of a property, the generation	of a SelectionRequest,
       the receipt of a	SelectionNotify	event, and the receipt of a ClientMes-
       sage event, as described	in the PDM Selection Protocol.

       When finished, the caller is expected to	free data using	XFree.	XpGet-
       PdmStartParams returns zero if an error occurred, else non-zero.	If  an
       error occurs all	other_return values are	undefined.

       Setting	the  environment  variable XPDMSELECTION causes	XpGetPdmStart-
       Params to use an	alternate selection name. If not  set,	the  selection
       name PDM_MANAGER	is used.

       Setting the environment variable	XPDMDISPLAY causes XpGetPdmStartParams
       to locate the selection on an alternate X Server. If  not  set,	selec-
	is  set	 equal	to print_display.  If XPDMDISPLAY is set to one	of the
       keywords	 "print"  or  "video",	selection_display_return  is  set   to
       print_display  or video_display,	respectively. If XPDMDISPLAY is	set to
       a valid DISPLAY-style string, selection_display_return may be  set,  as
       appropriate,  to	 one of	print_display, video_display, or to a new dis-
       play connection opened from within  XpGetPdmStartParams.	 Only  in  the
       single  case  where  a new display connection is	made should the	caller
       close selection_display_return using XCloseDisplay.

       When XpGetPdmStartParams	is called, the caller's	locale	(see  XpSetLo-
       caleHinter) is included in the information as a "hint" to the Print Di-
       alog Manager (PDM). If supported	by the implementation,	the  PDM  will
       use  the	hint to	display	dialogs	more appropriately labeled for the lo-
       cale of the client. If the Print	Dialog Manager cannot  understand  the
       hint,  the PDM will choose a default. Note that the locale of the print
       attributes that the PDM will subsequently  access,  will	 already  have
       been determined when the	client called XpCreateContext.

       The  environment	 variables  XPDMDISPLAY	 and XPDMSELECTION are re-read
       each time XpGetPdmStartParams is	called.
