Synopsis

Tt_message tt_message_create(void);

Description

tt_message_create(3)          ToolTalk Functions          tt_message_create(3)



NAME
       tt_message_create - create a new message object

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Tt/tt_c.h>
       Tt_message tt_message_create(void);

DESCRIPTION
       The tt_message_create() function creates a new message object.

       The ToolTalk service returns a message handle that is an opaque pointer
       to a ToolTalk structure.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, the  tt_message_create()  function  returns
       the  unique  opaque  handle  that  identifies  the message object.  The
       application can use tt_ptr_error(3) to extract  one  of  the  following
       Tt_status values from the returned handle:

          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 process identification is not valid.

APPLICATION USAGE
       A return value of TT_ERR_PROCID implies that tt_open(3) was not  issued
       before tt_message_create().

       If  the  ToolTalk service is unable to create a message when requested,
       tt_message_create() returns an invalid handle.   When  the  application
       attempts  to  use  this  handle  with  another  ToolTalk  function, the
       ToolTalk service will return TT_ERR_POINTER.
