tttk_message_create(3)        ToolTalk Functions        tttk_message_create(3)



NAME
       tttk_message_create  -  create  a message conforming to the CDE conven-
       tions

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Tt/tttk.h>
       Tt_message tttk_message_create(Tt_message context,
                                      Tt_class the_class,
                                      Tt_scope the_scope,
                                      const char *handler,
                                      const char *op,
                                      Tt_message_callback callback);

DESCRIPTION
       The tttk_message_create() function creates a  message  that  propagates
       inherited  contexts from one message to another.  The tttk_message_cre-
       ate() function creates a message and copies onto  it  all  the  context
       slots  from context whose slotname begins with the characters ENV_.  It
       gives the created message a Tt_class of the_class  and  a  Tt_scope  of
       the_scope.    If   handler  is  not  NULL,  then  tttk_message_create()
       addresses the message as a TT_HANDLER to  that  procid;  otherwise,  it
       gives  the message a Tt_address of TT_PROCEDURE.  It sets the message's
       op to op if op is not NULL.  If callback is not NULL, tttk_message_cre-
       ate() adds it to the message as a message callback.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon  successful completion, the tttk_message_create() function returns
       the created Tt_message , which can be  modified,  sent,  and  destroyed
       like  any  other  Tt_message  ; otherwise, it returns an error pointer.
       The application can use tt_ptr_error(3) to extract one of the following
       Tt_status values from the returned handle:

          TT_ERR_NOMEM
                  There  is insufficient memory available to perform the func-
                  tion.

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

          TT_ERR_PROCID
                  The specified process identifier is out of date or invalid.
