NAME
       Revert - discard any modifications to an entity

SYNOPSIS
       [file] Revert(in type ID);

DESCRIPTION
       The  Revert  notice  asks  that any pending, unsaved modifications to a
       persistent entity (such as a file) be discarded.

       The ID argument is the identity of the entity to revert.  When its type
       is  File, then the ID argument is unset (in other words, has a value of
       (char *)0), and it refers to the file or directory named  in  the  mes-
       sage's file attribute.

ERRORS
       The ToolTalk service may return one of the following errors in process-
       ing the Revert notice:

          TT_DESKTOP_UNMODIFIED
                The entity had no pending, unsaved modifications.

          TT_DESKTOP_ENOENT
                The file to save/revert does not exist.

APPLICATION USAGE
       The ttdt_file_join(3), function can be used to register for,  and  help
       process, the Revert request.

       The  Revert  request  can  be  sent  with  ttdt_file_request(3).  Also,
       ttdt_Revert(3), can send the relevant message and block on the reply.
