NAME
       tt_spec_write  -  write  the  spec and any associated properties to the
       ToolTalk database

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Tt/tt_c.h>
       Tt_status tt_spec_write(const char *objid);

DESCRIPTION
       The tt_spec_write() function writes the spec and any associated proper-
       ties to the ToolTalk database.  The type must be set before the spec is
       written for the first time.

       The objid argument is the identifier of the  object  involved  in  this
       operation.

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

          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_OBJID
                  The  objid passed to the ToolTalk service does not reference
                  an existing object spec.

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

APPLICATION USAGE
       It is not necessary to perform a write operation after a destroy opera-
       tion.

       Several changes can be batched between write calls;  for  example,  the
       application  can  create  an object spec, set some properties, and then
       write all the changes at once with one write call.
