rpc_free_handle(3ncs) [ultrix man page]

rpc_free_handle(3ncs)													     rpc_free_handle(3ncs)

Name
       rpc_free_handle - free an RPC handle (client only)

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

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

Arguments
       handle The RPC handle to be freed.

       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 frees an RPC handle.  This routine clears any association between the handle and  a	server	or  an	object	and  releases  the
       resources identified by the RPC handle.	The client program cannot use a handle after it is freed.

Examples
       The following statement frees a handle:
       rpc_$free_handle (handle, &status);

Diagnostics
       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.

rpc_alloc_handle(3ncs)													    rpc_alloc_handle(3ncs)

Name
       rpc_alloc_handle - create an RPC handle (client only)

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

       handle_t rpc_$alloc_handle(object, family, status)
       uuid_$t *object;
       unsigned long family;
       status_$t *status;

Arguments
       object		   The UUID of the object to be accessed.  If there is no specific object, specify uuid_$nil.

       family		   The address family to use in communications to access the object.  Currently, only socket_$ internet is supported.

       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 creates an unbound RPC handle that identifies a particular object but not a particular server or host.

       If a remote procedure call is made using the unbound handle, it will effect a 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
       responding server.

Examples
       The following statement allocates a handle that identifies the Acme company's payroll database object:
       h = rpc_$alloc_handle (&acme_pay_id, socket_$internet, &status);

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

       rpc_$comm_failure   The client was unable to get a response from the server.

       rpc_$unk_if	   The	requested interface is not known.  It is not registered in the server, the version number of the registered inter-
			   face is different from the version number specified in the request, or the UUID in the request does not match the  UUID
			   of the registered interface.

       rpc_$cant_create_sock
			   The RPC runtime library was unable to create a socket.

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

       rpc_$wrong_boot_time
			   The	server	boot  time value maintained by the client does not correspond to the current server boot time.	The server
			   was probably rebooted while the client program was running.

       rpc_$not_in_call    An internal error.

       rpc_$you_crashed    This error can occur if a server has crashed and restarted.	A client RPC runtime library sends the error to the server
			   if  the  client  makes  a  remote  procedure  call before the server crashes, then receives a response after the server
			   restarts.

       rpc_$proto_error    An internal protocol error.
