Name
       rpc_listen - listen for and handle remote procedure call (RPC) packets (server only)

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

       void rpc_$listen(max_calls, status)
       unsigned long max_calls;
       status_$t *status;

Arguments
       max_calls      This  value  indicates  the  maximum number of calls that the server is allowed to process concurrently.	On ULTRIX systems,
		      this value should be 1; any other value is ignored and defaulted to one.

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

       issue or before you use This routine normally does not return.  A return from this routine indicates either an irrecoverable error, or that
       an call has been issued.  If is equal to status_$ok , the assumption is that has occurred.

Examples
       Listen for incoming remote procedure call requests.
       rpc_$listen (1, &status);

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

       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.

       rpc_$bad_pkt	   The server or client has received an ill-formed packet.

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

       void rpc_$allow_remote_shutdown(allow, checkproc, status)
       unsigned long allow;
       rpc_$shut_check_fn_t checkproc;
       status_$t *status;

Arguments

       checkproc	   A pointer to a Boolean function.

       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 allows or disallows remote callers to shut down a server using

       By default, servers do not allow remote shutdown via If a server calls with allow true (not zero) and checkproc nil, then  remote  shutdown
       will be allowed.  If allow is true and checkproc is not nil, then when a remote shutdown request arrives, the function denoted by checkproc
       is called and the shutdown is allowed if the function returns true.  If allow is false (zero), remote shutdown is disallowed.

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

       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
