NAME
       tt_file_join - register interest in messages involving a file

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Tt/tt_c.h>
       Tt_status tt_file_join(const char *filepath);

DESCRIPTION
       The  tt_file_join()  function  informs  the  ToolTalk  service that the
       process is interested in messages that involve the specified file.

       The ToolTalk service adds this file value to any  currently  registered
       patterns.  The named file becomes the default file.

       When  the  process  joins a file, the ToolTalk service updates the file
       field of its registered patterns.  The tt_file_join() call  causes  the
       pattern's ToolTalk session to be stored in the database.

       The filepath argument is a pointer to the pathname of the file in which
       the process is interested.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, the  tt_file_join()  function  returns  the
       status of the operation as one of the following Tt_status values:

          TT_OK   The operation completed successfully.

          TT_ERR_DBAVAIL
                  The  ToolTalk service could not access the ToolTalk database
                  needed for this operation.

          TT_ERR_DBEXIST
                  The ToolTalk service could not access the specified ToolTalk
                  database in the expected place.

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