This chapter provides instructions on how to participate in a ToolTalk session. It also shows you how to manage storage of values passed in from the ToolTalk service and how to handle errors that the ToolTalk service returns.
To use the ToolTalk service, your application calls ToolTalk functions from the ToolTalk API library. To modify your application to use the ToolTalk service, you must first include the ToolTalk API header file in your program. After you have initialized the ToolTalk service and joined a session, you can join files and additional user sessions. When your process is ready to quit, you unregister your message patterns and leave your ToolTalk session.
