NAME
       tt_message_address - retrieve the address attribute from a message

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Tt/tt_c.h>
       Tt_address tt_message_address(Tt_message m);

DESCRIPTION
       The  tt_message_address() function retrieves the address attribute from
       the specified message.

       The m argument is the opaque handle for the message  involved  in  this
       operation.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, the tt_message_address() function returns a
       value that specifies which message attributes form the address of  this
       message.   The tt_message_address() function returns one of the follow-
       ing Tt_address values:

          TT_HANDLER
                  The message is addressed to a specific handler that can per-
                  form this operation with these arguments.

          TT_OBJECT
                  The  message is addressed to a specific object that can per-
                  form this operation with these arguments.

          TT_OTYPE
                  The message is addressed to the type of object that can per-
                  form this operation with these arguments.

          TT_PROCEDURE
                  The  message  is  addressed  to any process that can perform
                  this operation with these arguments.

       Note that messages of class TT_OFFER may only be sent with  an  address
       of  TT_PROCEDURE.   Attempting  to send an Offer with any other address
       will result in an error return of TT_ERR_ADDRESS.

       The application can use tt_int_error(3) to extract one of the following
       Tt_status values from the returned integer:

          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_POINTER
                  The pointer passed does not point to an object of  the  cor-
                  rect type for this operation.

          TT_ERR_ADDRESS
                  The specified Tt_address is invalid.
