#include <picltree.h>

int ptree_find_node(picl_nodehdl_t rooth, char *pname,

The ptree_find_node() function visits the nodes in the subtree under the node specified by rooth. The handle of the node that has the property whose name, type, and value matches the name, type, and value specified in pname, ptype, and pval respectively, is returned in the location given by retnodeh.
