NAME
       tt_default_ptype - retrieve the current default ptype

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Tt/tt_c.h>
       char *tt_default_ptype(void);

DESCRIPTION
       The tt_default_ptype() function retrieves the current default ptype.

       When the application declares a ptype, the ptype becomes the default.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon  successful  completion, the tt_default_ptype() function returns a
       pointer to a character string  that  uniquely  identifies  the  current
       default process type.  If the pointer is NULL, no default ptype is set.
       The application can use tt_ptr_error(3) to extract one of the following
       Tt_status values from the returned pointer:

          TT_OK   The operation completed successfully.

          TT_ERR_NOMP
                  The  ttsession(1)  process  is  not running and the ToolTalk
                  service cannot restart it.

          TT_ERR_PROCID
                  The current default process identifier is  out  of  date  or
                  invalid.

APPLICATION USAGE
       The  application  should  use tt_free(3) to free any data stored in the
       address returned by the ToolTalk API.
