NAME
       tt_message_disposition_set  -  set the disposition attribute for a mes-
       sage

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Tt/tt_c.h>
       Tt_status tt_message_disposition_set(Tt_message m,
                                            Tt_disposition r);

DESCRIPTION
       The  tt_message_disposition_set()   function   sets   the   disposition
       attribute for the specified message.

       The  m  argument  is the opaque handle for the message involved in this
       operation.  The r argument indicates whether an instance of the receiv-
       ing  process  is  to  be started to receive the message immediately, or
       whether the message is to be queued  until  the  receiving  process  is
       started at a later time.  The following values are defined:

          TT_DISCARD
                  There  is no receiver for this message.  The message will be
                  returned to the sender with the Tt_status  field  containing
                  TT_FAILED.

          TT_QUEUE
                  Queue  the  message  until  a  process  of  the proper ptype
                  receives the message.

          TT_START
                  Attempt to start a process of the proper ptype  if  none  is
                  running.

          TT_QUEUE+TT_START
                  Queue  the  message  and  attempt  to start a process of the
                  proper ptype if none is running.

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

          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.
