NAME
       XmDirectionToStringDirection — A function that converts an XmDirection
       value to an XmStringDirection value

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Xm/Xm.h>
       XmStringDirection XmDirectionToStringDirection (dir)
               XmDirection     dir;
       (void)

DESCRIPTION
       XmDirectionToStringDirection converts the specified XmDirection
       direction value to its equivalent XmStringDirection value.  Basically,
       if the XmDirection value has a horizontal direction specification, that
       horizontal element is used; otherwise, the XmStringDirection value is
       interpreted as XmSTRING_DIRECTION_L_TO_R.  This function provides
       backward compatibility with the XmStringDirection data type.

       Note that the Motif toolkit also contains an
       XmStringDirectionToDirection routine to convert an XmStringDirection
       value to its XmDirection equivalent.

       dir       Specifies the XmDirection value to be converted.

RETURN
       Returns the following XmStringDirection values:

       XmSTRING_DIRECTION_R_TO_L
                 If the dir argument has a right to left horizontal direction
                 value in it, for example XmRIGHT_TO_LEFT_TOP_TO_BOTTOM.

       XmSTRING_DIRECTION_L_TO_R
                 If the dir argument has a left to right horizontal direction
                 in it, for example XmLEFT_TO_RIGHT_TOP_TO_BOTTOM, or if the
                 horizontal direction value in the dir argument is ambiguous,
                 such as in the XmTOP_TO_BOTTOM value.

       XmSTRING_DIRECTION_DEFAULT
                 If there was no horizontal direction specified.
