XrmMergeDatabases(3)		XLIB FUNCTIONS		  XrmMergeDatabases(3)

NAME
       XrmMergeDatabases, XrmCombineDatabase, XrmCombineFileDatabase - merge
       resource	databases

SYNTAX
       #include	<X11/Xresource.h>

       void XrmMergeDatabases(XrmDatabase source_db, XrmDatabase *target_db);

       void XrmCombineDatabase(XrmDatabase source_db, XrmDatabase *target_db,
	      Bool override);

       Status XrmCombineFileDatabase(char *filename, XrmDatabase *target_db,
	      Bool override);

ARGUMENTS
       source_db Specifies the resource	database that is to be merged into the
		 target	database.

       target_db Specifies the resource	database into which the	source data-
		 base is to be merged.

       filename	 Specifies the resource	database file name.

       override	 Specifies whether source entries override target ones.

DESCRIPTION
       Calling the XrmMergeDatabases function is equivalent to calling the
       XrmCombineDatabase function with	an override argument of	True.

       The XrmCombineDatabase function merges the contents of one database
       into another.  If the same specifier is used for	an entry in both data-
       bases, the entry	in the source_db will replace the entry	in the tar-
       get_db if override is True; otherwise, the entry	in source_db is	dis-
       carded.	If target_db contains NULL, XrmCombineDatabase simply stores
       source_db in it.	 Otherwise, source_db is destroyed by the merge, but
       the database pointed to by target_db is not destroyed.  The database
       entries are merged without changing values or types, regardless of the
       locales of the databases.  The locale of	the target database is not
       modified.

       The XrmCombineFileDatabase function merges the contents of a resource
       file into a database.  If the same specifier is used for	an entry in
       both the	file and the database, the entry in the	file will replace the
       entry in	the database if	override is True; otherwise, the entry in the
       file is discarded.  The file is parsed in the current locale.  If the
       file cannot be read, a zero status is returned; otherwise, a nonzero
       status is returned.  If target_db contains NULL,	XrmCombineFileDatabase
       creates and returns a new database to it.  Otherwise, the database
       pointed to by target_db is not destroyed	by the merge.  The database
       entries are merged without changing values or types, regardless of the
       locale of the database.	The locale of the target database is not modi-
       fied.
