int XmClipboardCopyByName (display, window, data_id, buffer, length, private_id)

XmClipboardCopyByName copies the actual data
for a data item that was previously passed by name to the clipboard. Data
is considered to be passed by name when a call to XmClipboardCopy is made with a NULL buffer parameter. Additional calls to this
function append new data to the existing data.
Specifies a pointer to the Display
structure that was returned in a previous call to XOpenDisplay
Specifies a widget's window ID that relates the application
window to the clipboard. The widget's window ID can be obtained by using XtWindow. The same application instance should pass the same window
ID to each clipboard function it calls.
Specifies an identifying number assigned to the data item
that uniquely identifies the data item and the format. This number was assigned
by XmClipboardCopy to the data item.
Specifies the buffer from which the clipboard copies the data.
Specifies the number of bytes in the data item.
Specifies the private data that the application wants to store
with the data item.
The function is successful.
The function failed because the clipboard was locked by another
application. The application can continue to call the function again with
the same parameters until the lock goes away. This gives the application
the opportunity to ask if the user wants to keep trying or to give up on the
