SYNOPSIS


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

int picl_get_first_prop(picl_nodehdl_t nodeh,
piclprop_hdl_t *proph);


int picl_get_next_prop(picl_prophdl_t proph,
picl_prophdl_t *nextprop);


DESCRIPTION


The picl_get_first_prop() function gets the handle of the first property
of the node specified by nodeh and copies it into the location given by
proph.


The picl_get_next_prop() function gets the handle of the next property
after the one specified by proph from the property list of the node, and
copies it into the location specified by nextprop.


If there are no more properties, this function returns PICL_ENDOFLIST.

RETURN VALUES


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


PICL_ENDOFLIST is returned to indicate that there are no more properties.


PICL_STALEHANDLE is returned if the handle is no longer valid. This
occurs if the PICL tree was refreshed or reinitialized.


PICL_INVALIDHANDLE is returned if the specified handle never existed.
This error may be returned for a previously valid handle if the daemon
was brought down and restarted. When this occurs a client must revalidate
any saved handles.
