can have embedded null characters and need not be null-terminated. The cut
buffer's contents can be retrieved later by any client calling XFetchBytes.
- Specifies the buffer in which you
want to store the bytes or from which you want the stored data returned.
- Specifies the bytes, which are not necessarily ASCII or null-terminated.
- Specifies the connection to the X server.
- Specifies the number
of bytes to be stored.
- Returns the number of bytes in the buffer.
- Specifies how much to rotate the cut buffers.
XStoreBytes can generate a BadAlloc error.
If an invalid buffer is
specified, the call has no effect. The data can have embedded null characters
and need not be null-terminated.
XStoreBuffer can generate a BadAlloc
The XFetchBytes function returns the number of bytes in the nbytes_return
argument, if the buffer contains data. Otherwise, the function returns NULL
and sets nbytes to 0. The appropriate amount of storage is allocated and
the pointer returned. The client must free this storage when finished with
it by calling XFree.
The XFetchBuffer function returns zero to the nbytes_return
argument if there is no data in the buffer or if an invalid buffer is
XFetchBuffer can generate a BadValue error.
function rotates the cut buffers, such that buffer 0 becomes buffer n,
buffer 1 becomes n + 1 mod 8, and so on. This cut buffer numbering is global
to the display. Note that XRotateBuffers generates BadMatch errors if
any of the eight buffers have not been created.
XRotateBuffers can generate
a BadMatch error.
- The server failed to allocate
the requested resource or server memory.
- A value for an Atom argument
does not name a defined Atom.
- Some argument or pair of arguments
has the correct type and range but fails to match in some other way required
by the request.
- 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.
