NAME
       Status - a tool has some status information to announce

SYNOPSIS
       Status(in string status,
              in string vendor,
              in string toolName,
              in string toolVersion
              [in messageID commission]);

DESCRIPTION
       The  Status  notice  indicates  that  a  tool has status information to
       announce.

       The status argument is the status being announced.

       The vendor argument is the vendor of the sending tool.

       The toolName argument is the name of the sending tool.

       The toolVersion argument is the version of the sending tool.

       The commission argument is the ID of the request, if any,  that  initi-
       ated the operation the status of which is being announced.

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

       The Status request can be sent with ttdt_message_accept(3).

       The Status notice can be used by handlers  of  requests  invoking  pro-
       tracted operations to provide periodic point-to-point status reports to
       the requester.  Doing so has the nice side effect  of  identifying  the
       handler  to  the  requester,  so  that  the  requester can issue a Quit
       request if it wants to.
