SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag... ] file... -l [ library... ]
#include <picl.h>

int picl_find_node(picl_nodehdl_trooth, char *pname,
picl_prop_type_t ptype, void *pval, size_t valsize,
picl_nodehdl_t *retnodeh);


DESCRIPTION


The picl_find_node() function visits the nodes in the subtree under the
node specified by rooth. The handle of the node that has the property
whose name, type, and value matches the name, type, and value specified
in pname, ptype, and pval respectively, is returned in the location given
by retnodeh. The valsize argument specifies the size of the value in
pval. The first valsize number of bytes of the property value is compared
with pval.

RETURN VALUES


Upon successful completion, 0 is returned. Otherwise a non-negative
integer is returned to indicate an error.


The value PICL_NODENOTFOUND is returned if no node that matches the
property criteria can be found.
