- get a property handle by name
cc [ flag ] file... -lpicltree [ library... ] #include <picltree.h> int ptree_get_prop_by_name(picl_nodehdl_t nodeh, char *name, picl_prophdl_t *proph);
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.
PICL_RESERVEDNAME is returned if the name specified is a PICL reserved name property. Reserved name properties do not have an associated property handle. Use ptree_get_propval_by_name(3PICLTREE) to get the value of a reserved property.
PICL_STALEHANDLE is returned if the handle is no longer valid.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.
