PTREE_CREATE_TABLE(3PICLTREE) PICL Plug-In Library Functions


NAME


ptree_create_table, ptree_add_row_to_table - create a table object

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag... ] file... -lpicltree [ library... ]
#include <picltree.h>

int ptree_create_table(picl_prophdl_t *tbl_hdl);


int ptree_add_row_to_table(picl_prophdl_t tbl_hdl, int nprops,
picl_prophdl_t *proph);


DESCRIPTION


The ptree_create_table() function creates a table object and returns the
handle of the table in tbl_hdl.


The ptree_add_row_to_table() function adds a row of properties to the
table specified by tbl_hdl. The handles of the properties of the row are
specified in the proph array and nprops specifies the number of handles
in the array. The number of columns in the table is determined from the
first row added to the table. If extra column values are specified in
subsequent rows, they are ignored. The row is appended to the end of the
table.

RETURN VALUES


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


PICL_STALEHANDLE is returned if the handle is no longer valid.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.

Invalid argument


PICL_NOTPROP

PICL_NOTTABLE
