wsreg_initialize(3WSREG)			    Product Install Registry Library Functions				  wsreg_initialize(3WSREG)

NAME
wsreg_initialize - initialize wsreg library SYNOPSIS
cc [flag ...] file ...-lwsreg [library ...] #include <wsreg.h> int wsreg_initialize(Wsreg_init_level level, const char *alternate_root); DESCRIPTION
The wsreg_initialize() function initializes the wsreg library. The level argument can be one of the following: WSREG_INIT_NORMAL If an old registry file is present, attempt to perform a conversion. WSREG_INIT_NO_CONVERSION If an old conversion file is present, do not perform the conversion, but indicate that the conversion is recommended. The alternate_root argument can be used to specify a root prefix. If NULL is specified, no root prefix is used. RETURN VALUES
The wsreg_initialize() function can return one of the following: WSREG_SUCCESS The initialization was successful and no registry conversion is necessary. WSREG_CONVERSION_RECOMMENDED An old registry file exists and should be converted. A conversion is attempted if the init_level argument is WSREG_INIT_NORMAL and a registry file from a previous version of the product install registry exists. If the wsreg_initialize() function returns WSREG_CONVERSION_RECOMMENDED, the user either does not have permission to update the product install registry or does not have read/write access to the previous registry file. USAGE
The wsreg_initialize() function must be called before any other wsreg library functions. The registry conversion can take some time to complete. The registry conversion can also be performed using the graphical registry viewer /usr/bin/prodreg or by the registry converter /usr/bin/regconvert. ATTRIBUTES

NAME
wsreg_can_access_registry - determine access to product install registry SYNOPSIS
cc [flag ...] file ...-lwsreg [library ...] #include <fcntl.h> #include <wsreg.h> int wsreg_can_access_registry(int access_flag); DESCRIPTION
The wsreg_can_access_registry() function is used to determine what access, if any, an application has to the product install registry. The access_flag argument can be one of the following: O_RDONLY Inquire about read only access to the registry. O_RDWR Inquire about modify (read and write) access to the registry. RETURN VALUES
The wsreg_can_access_registry() function returns non-zero if the specified access level is permitted. A return value of 0 indicates the specified access level is not permitted. EXAMPLES
Example 1: Initialize the registry and determine if access to the registry is permitted. #include <fcntl.h> #include <wsreg.h> int main(int argc, char **argv) { int result; if (wsreg_initialize(WSREG_INIT_NORMAL, NULL)) { printf("conversion recommended, sufficient access denied "); } if (wsreg_can_access_registry(O_RDONLY)) { printf("registry read access granted "); } else { printf("registry read access denied "); } if (wsreg_can_access_registry(O_RDWR)) { printf("registry read/write access granted "); } else { printf("registry read/write access denied "); } } USAGE
The wsreg_initialize(3WSREG) function must be called before calls to wsreg_can_access_registry() can be made. ATTRIBUTES
