DESCRIPTION


The ptree_get_prop_by_name() function gets the handle of the property,
whose name is specified in name, of the node specified by the handle
nodeh. The property handle is copied into the location specified by
proph.

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

occurs if the PICL tree was refreshed or reinitialized.
