lname(3erl)			     Erlang Module Definition			      lname(3erl)

NAME
       lname - Interface that supports the name pseudo-objects.

DESCRIPTION
       This  interface is a part of the names library which is used to hide the representation of
       names. In Orbers Erlang mapping the pseudo-object names and the real IDL  names	have  the
       same  representation  but  it is desirable that the clients uses the names library so they
       will not be dependent of the representation. The  lname	interface  supports  handling  of
       names e.g. adding and removing name components.

       Note  that  the	lname  interface in orber does not contain a destroy function because the
       Names are represented as standard Erlang lists and therefor will be removed by the garbage
       collector when not in use.

       The type NameComponent used below is defined as:

	     -record('CosNaming_NameComponent', {id, kind=""}).

       id and kind are strings.

       The record is defined in the file CosNaming.hrl and it is included with:

	     -include_lib("orber/COSS/CosNaming/CosNaming.hrl").

EXPORTS
       create() -> Return

	      Types  Return = [NameComponent]

	      This function returns a new name.

       insert_component(Name, N, NameComponent) -> Return

	      Types  Name = [NameComponent]
		     N = int()
		     Return = Name

	      This function returns a name where the new name component has been inserted as com-
	      ponent N in Name.

       get_component(Name, N) -> Return

	      Types  Name = [NameComponent]
		     N = int()
		     Return = NameComponent

	      This function returns the N:th name component in Name.

       delete_component(Name, N) -> Return

	      Types  Name = [NameComponent]
		     N = int()
		     Return = Name

	      This function deletes the N:th name component from Name and returns the new name.

       num_component(Name) -> Return

	      Types  Name = [NameComponent]
		     Return = int()

	      This function returns a the number of name components in Name.

       equal(Name1, Name2) -> Return

	      Types  Name1 = Name2 = [NameComponent]
		     Return = bool()

	      This function returns true if the two names are equal and false otherwise.

       less_than(Name1, Name2) -> Return

	      Types  Name1 = Name2 = [NameComponent]
		     Return = bool()

	      This function returns true if Name1 are lesser than Name2 and false otherwise.

       to_idl_form(Name) -> Return

	      Types  Name = [NameComponent]
		     Return = Name

	      This function just checks if Name is a correct IDL name before returning it because
	      the name representation is the same for pseudo and IDL names in orber.

       from_idl_form(Name) -> Return

	      Types  Name = [NameComponent]
		     Return = Name

	      This function just returns the Name because the name representation is the same for
	      pseudo and IDL names in orber.
