<title>Subclassing the TextSrc</title>
<para>
The only purpose of the TextSrc Object is to be subclassed.  It contains
the minimum set of class methods that all text sources must have.  All
class methods of the TextSrc must be defined, as the Text widget uses
them all.  While all may be inherited, the direct descendant of TextSrc
<function>must</function> specify some of them as TextSrc does not contain enough
information to be a valid text source by itself.  Do not try to use the
TextSrc as a valid source for the Text widget; it is not intended to be
used as a source by itself and bad things will probably happen.

<para>
This function will search through the text buffer attempting to find a
match for the string in the text block.  If a match is found in the
direction specified, then the character location of the first character
in the string is returned.  If no text was found then
<function>XawTextSearchError</function> is returned.

<!-- .LP -->
While many selection types are handled by the Text widget, text sources
may have selection types unknown to the Text widget.  When a selection
conversion is requested by the X server the Text widget will first call
the <function>ConvertSelection</function> function, to attempt the selection
conversion.

this storage.  The memory is considered owned by the toolkit, and is
freed by XtFree when the Intrinsics selection mechanism is done with it.

should define a <xref linkend='SetSelection' xrefstyle='select: title'/> procedure:
