                 Specifies the name of the application instance.

                 Specifies the class name of this application, which usually
                 is the generic name for all instances of this application.

                 Specifies the widget class that the application top-level
                 widget should be.

       display   Specifies the display from which to get the resources.

       args      Specifies the argument list from which to get the resources.

       num_args  Specifies the number of arguments in the argument list.

       The XtAppCreateShell function saves the specified application name and
       application class for qualifying all widget resource specifiers.  The
       application name and application class are used as the left-most compo-
       nents in all widget resource names for this application.  XtAppCreate-
       Shell should be used to create a new logical application within a pro-
       gram or to create a shell on another display.  In the first case, it
       allows the specification of a new root in the resource hierarchy.  In
       the second case, it uses the resource database associated with the
       other display.

       Note that the widget returned by XtAppCreateShell has the WM_COMMAND
       property set for session managers (see Chapter 4).
