rpc_dup_handle(3ncs) [ultrix man page]

rpc_dup_handle(3ncs)													      rpc_dup_handle(3ncs)

Name
       rpc_dup_handle - make a copy of an RPC handle (client only)

Syntax
       #include <idl/c/rpc.h>

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

Arguments
       handle The RPC handle to be copied.

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

Description
       The routine returns a copy of an existing RPC handle.  Both handles can then be used in the client program for concurrent multiple accesses
       to  a binding.  Because all duplicates of a handle reference the same data, an or routine made on any one duplicate affects all duplicates.
       However, an RPC handle is not freed until is called on all copies of the handle.

rpc_set_binding(3ncs)													     rpc_set_binding(3ncs)

Name
       rpc_set_binding - bind an RPC handle to a server (client only)

Syntax
       #include <idl/c/rpc.h>

       void rpc_$set_binding(handle, sockaddr, slength, status)
       handle_t handle;
       socket_$addr_t *sockaddr;
       unsigned long slength;
       status_$t *status;

Arguments
       handle		   An RPC handle.

       sockaddr 	   The socket address of the server with which the handle is being associated.

       slength		   The length, in bytes, of sockaddr.

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

Description
       The routine sets the binding of an RPC handle to the specified server.  The handle then identifies a specific object at a specific  server.
       Any subsequent remote procedure calls that a client makes using the handle are sent to this destination.

       You  can  use  this routine either to set the binding in an unbound handle or to replace the existing binding in a fully bound or bound-to-
       host handle.

Examples
       The following statement sets the binding on the handle to the first server in the array, which was returned by a previous  Location  Broker
       lookup routine,
       rpc_$set_binding (h, &lbresults[0].saddr, lbresults[0].saddr_len,
			      &status);

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

       rpc_$cant_bind_sock The RPC runtime library created a socket but was unable to bind it to a socket address.

       rpc_$not_in_call    An internal error.

       rpc_$proto_error    An internal protocol error.
