NAME
       MrmRegisterNames — Registers the values associated with the names
       referenced in UIL (for example, UIL callback function names or UIL
       identifier names)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Mrm/MrmPublic.h>
       Cardinal MrmRegisterNames(
       MrmRegisterArglist register_list,
       MrmCount register_count);

DESCRIPTION
       The MrmRegisterNames function registers a vector of names and
       associated values for access in MRM.  The values can be callback
       functions, pointers to user-defined data, or any other values.  The
       information provided is used to resolve symbolic references occurring
       in UID files to their run-time values.  For callbacks, this information
       provides the procedure address required by the Motif Toolkit.  For
       names used as identifiers in UIL, this information provides any run-
       time mapping the application needs.

       This function is similar to MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy, except that
       the scope of the names registered by MrmRegisterNamesInHierarchy is
       limited to the hierarchy specified in the call to that function,
       whereas the names registered by MrmRegisterNames have global scope.
       When MRM looks up a name, it first tries to find the name among those
       registered for the given hierarchy.  If that lookup fails, it tries to
       find the name among those registered globally.

       register_list
                 Specifies a list of name/value pairs for the names to be
                 registered.  Each name is a case-sensitive, NULL-terminated
                 ASCII string.  Each value is a 32-bit quantity, interpreted
                 as a procedure address if the name is a callback function,
                 and uninterpreted otherwise.

       register_count
                 Specifies the number of entries in register_list.

       The names in the list are case-sensitive.  The list can be either
       ordered or unordered.

       Callback functions registered through MrmRegisterNames can be either
       regular or creation callbacks.  Regular callbacks have declarations
       determined by Motif Toolkit and user requirements.  Creation callbacks
       have the same format as any other callback:

       void CallBackProc(
       Widget *widget_id,
       Opaque tag,
       XmAnyCallbackStruct *callback_data);

       widget_id Specifies the widget ID associated with the widget performing
                 the callback (as in any callback function).

       tag       Specifies the tag value (as in any callback function).

       callback_data
                 Specifies a widget-specific data structure.  This data
                 structure has a minimum of two members: event and reason.
                 The reason member is always set to MrmCR_CREATE.

       Note that the widget name and parent are available from the widget
       record accessible through widget_id.

RETURN
       This function returns one of the following status return constants:

       MrmSUCCESS
                 The function executed successfully.

       MrmFAILURE
                 The function failed.
