pfm_signal(3ncs)														  pfm_signal(3ncs)

       pfm_signal - signal the calling process

       #include <idl/c/base.h>
       #include <idl/c/pfm.h>

       void pfm_$signal(fault_signal)
       status_$t *fault_signal;

       fault_signal	   A fault code.

       The routine signals the fault specified by fault_signal to the calling process.	It is usually called to leave clean-up handlers.

       This section lists status codes for errors returned by this routine.

       pfm_$bad_rls_order  Attempted to release a clean-up handler out of order.

			   There is no pending clean-up handler.

       pfm_$cleanup_set    A clean-up handler was established successfully.

			   Attempted to use pfm_$cleanup_set as a signal.

			   Passed an invalid clean-up record to a routine.

       pfm_$no_space	   Cannot allocate storage for a clean-up handler.  This routine does not return when successful.

rpc_clear_binding(3ncs) 												   rpc_clear_binding(3ncs)

       rpc_clear_binding - unset the binding of an RPC handle to a host and server (client only)

       #include <idl/c/rpc.h>

       void rpc_$clear_binding(handle, status)
       handle_t handle;
       status_$t *status;

       handle The RPC handle whose binding is being cleared.

       status The completion status.  If the completion status returned in is equal to status_$ok , then the routine that supplied it was success-

       The routine removes any association between an RPC handle and a particular server and host, but it does not remove the association  between
       the  handle and an object.  This routine saves the RPC handle so that it can be reused to access the same object, either by broadcasting or
       after resetting the binding to another server.

       A remote procedure call made using an unbound handle is broadcast to all Local Location Brokers (LLBs) on the local network.  If the call's
       interface  and  the  object  identified	by  the  handle are both registered with any LLB, that LLB forwards the request to the registering
       server.	The client RPC runtime library returns the first response that it  receives  and  binds  the  handle  to  the  first  server  that

       The routine is the inverse of the routine.

       Clear the binding represented in handle:
       rpc_$clear_binding (handle, &status);

       This section lists status codes for errors returned by this routine in

       rpc_$not_in_call    An internal error.

       rpc_$proto_error    An internal protocol error.
