       XDrawString, XDrawString16 - draw text characters

       int XDrawString(Display *display, Drawable d, GC gc, int x, int y, char
	      *string, int length);

       int XDrawString16(Display *display, Drawable d, GC gc, int x, int y,
	      XChar2b *string, int length);

       d	 Specifies the drawable.

       display	 Specifies the connection to the X server.

       gc	 Specifies the GC.

       length	 Specifies the number of characters in the string argument.

       string	 Specifies the character string.

       y	 Specify the x and y coordinates, which are relative to the
		 origin of the specified drawable and define the origin of the
		 first character.

       Each character image, as defined by the font in the GC, is treated as
       an additional mask for a fill operation on the drawable.	 The drawable
       is modified only where the font character has a bit set to 1.  For
       fonts defined with 2-byte matrix indexing and used with XDrawString16,
       each byte is used as a byte2 with a byte1 of zero.

       Both functions use these GC components: function, plane-mask, fill-
       style, font, subwindow-mode, clip-x-origin, clip-y-origin, and clip-
       mask.  They also use these GC mode-dependent components: foreground,
       background, tile, stipple, tile-stipple-x-origin, and tile-stipple-y-

       XDrawString and XDrawString16 can generate BadDrawable, BadGC, and Bad‐
       Match errors.

		 A value for a Drawable argument does not name a defined Win‐
		 dow or Pixmap.

       BadGC	 A value for a GContext argument does not name a defined GCon‐

       BadMatch	 An InputOnly window is used as a Drawable.

       BadMatch	 Some argument or pair of arguments has the correct type and
		 range but fails to match in some other way required by the
