NAME
       tttk_op_string - map a ToolTalk op code to a string

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Tt/tttk.h>
       char *tttk_op_string(Tttk_op opcode);

DESCRIPTION
       The  tttk_op_string()  function  returns a string containing the op for
       opcode.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon successful completion, the  tttk_op_string()  function  returns  a
       string that can be freed using tt_free(3); otherwise, it returns NULL.

APPLICATION USAGE
       The distinctions in the Tttk_op enumerated type are for programmer con-
       venience, and elements of Tttk_op do  not  necessarily  map  one-to-one
       with op strings, since ToolTalk allows ops to be overloaded.  For exam-
       ple, TTME_EDIT and TTME_COMPOSE are overloaded on the same  op  (Edit),
       and the messages only vary by the Tt_mode of the first argument.
