XmStringInitContext — A compound string function that creates a data structure for scanning an XmString component by component

#include <Xm/Xm.h>
Boolean XmStringInitContext(
XmStringContext * context,
XmString string);

XmStringInitContext creates a context to allow applications to read out the contents of a compound string component by component. A Boolean status is returned to indicate that the context could not be initalized.

If the function returns True, the function will allocate space to hold the returned context. The application is responsible for managing the allocated space. The memory can be recovered by calling XmStringFreeContext.
