Description

NAME
       tt_spec_create - create an in-memory spec for an object

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

DESCRIPTION
       The tt_spec_create() function creates a spec (in memory) for an object.

       The  application  can use the objid returned in future calls to manipu-
       late the object.

       The filepath argument is the name of the file.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, the tt_spec_create() function  returns  the
       identifier for this object.  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_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.

          TT_ERR_OTYPE
                  The specified object type is not the name  of  an  installed
                  object type.

          TT_ERR_PATH
                  The specified pathname included an unsearchable directory.

APPLICATION USAGE
       The  application  should  use tt_free(3) to free any data stored in the
       address returned by the ToolTalk API.

       To make the object a permanent ToolTalk item or one  visible  to  other
       processes, the creating process must call tt_spec_write(3).
