#include <picltree.h>

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


DESCRIPTION


The ptree_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 argument valsize gives the size of the value in pval.
The first valsize number of bytes of the property value is compared with
pval.

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

property criteria can be found.
