NAME
       Set_Situation - set a tool's current working directory

SYNOPSIS
       Set_Situation(in string path);

DESCRIPTION
       The Set_Situation request sets the current working directory.

       The  path  argument  is  the pathname of the working directory that the
       recipient should use.

APPLICATION USAGE
       The ttdt_session_join(3), function can be used  to  register  for,  and
       transparently process, the Set_Situation request.

EXAMPLES
       The Set_Situation request can be sent as in the following example:

            Tt_message msg = tttk_message_create(0, TT_REQUEST, TT_SESSION,
                        the_recipient_procid, TTDT_SET_SITUATION,
                        my_callback);
            tt_message_arg_add(msg, TT_OUT, Tttk_string, 0);
            tt_message_send(msg);

WARNINGS
       Set_Situation  can  also  be sent as a multicast notice, as an edict to
       all tools in the scope of the message.  The consequences  of  doing  so
       can be severe and unexpected.
