XmStringCreateSimple — A compound string function that creates a compound string in the language environment of a widget

#include <Xm/Xm.h>
XmString XmStringCreateSimple(
char * text);

XmStringCreateSimple creates a compound string with a text component and a charset tag. It derives the character set from the current language environment.

The routine attempts to derive a character set from the value of the LANG environment variable. If this does not result in a valid character set, the routine uses a vendor-specific default. If the vendor has not specified a different value, this default is ISO8859-1.

The function will allocate space to hold the returned compound string. The application is responsible for managing the allocated space. The application can recover the allocated space by calling XmStringFree.

NOTE: This routine is obsolete and exists for compatibility with previous releases. It has been replaced by XmStringCreateLocalized.

Specifies a NULL-terminated string to be used as the text component of the compound string.

Returns a new compound string.
