       char *tt_message_otype(Tt_message m);

DESCRIPTION
       The  tt_message_otype()  function  retrieves  the object type attribute

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

       Upon successful completion, the tt_message_otype() function returns the
       type of the object involved in this message.  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_POINTER
                  The  pointer  passed does not point to an object of the cor-
                  rect type for this operation.
