       object spec

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Tt/tt_c.h>
       char *tt_spec_propname(const char *objid,
                              int n);

DESCRIPTION
       The tt_spec_propname() function returns the nth element of the property
       name list for this object spec.

       The  objid  argument  is  the identifier of the object involved in this
       operation.  The n argument is the item of the list whose element is  to
       be returned.  The list numbering begins with zero.

       property name.  If there are n properties or  less,  tt_spec_propname()
       returns  NULL.   The application can use tt_ptr_error(3) to extract one
       of the following Tt_status values from the returned pointer:

                  needed for this operation.

                  The ToolTalk service could not access the specified ToolTalk

                  The ttsession(1) process is not  running  and  the  ToolTalk
                  service cannot restart it.

                  an existing object spec.

       address returned by the ToolTalk API.
