uuid_equal(3ncs)														  uuid_equal(3ncs)

       uuid_equal - compare two UUIDs

       #include <idl/c/uuid.h>

       boolean uuid_$equal(u1, u2)
       uuid_$t *u1;
       uuid_$t *u2;

       u1     A UUID.

       u2     Another UUID.

       The routine compares the UUIDs u1 and u2.  It returns `true' if they are equal, `false' if they are not.

       The following code compares the UUIDs bar_uuid and foo_uuid:
       if (uuid_$equal (&bar_uuid, &foo_uuid))
	   printf ("bar and foo UUIDs are equal
	   printf ("bar and foo UUIDs are not equal

rpc_inq_object(3ncs)													      rpc_inq_object(3ncs)

       rpc_inq_object - return the object UUID represented by an RPC handle (client or server)

       #include <idl/c/rpc.h>

       void rpc_$inq_object(handle, object, status)
       handle_t handle;
       uuid_$t *object;
       status_$t *status;

       handle		   An RPC handle.

       object		   The UUID of the object identified by handle.

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

       The routine enables a client or server to determine the particular object that a handle represents.

       If a server exports an interface through which clients can access several objects, it can use to determine the object requested in a  call.
       This routine requires an RPC handle as input, so the server can make the call only if the interface uses explicit handles (that is, if each
       operation in the interface has a handle parameter).  If the interface uses an implicit handle, the handle identifier is not passed  to  the

       A  database server that manages multiple databases must determine the particular database to be accessed whenever it receives a remote pro-
       cedure call.  Each manager routine makes the following call; the routine then uses the  returned  UUID  to  identify  the  database  to	be
       rpc_$inq_object (handle, &db_uuid, &status);

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

       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_$not_in_call    An internal error.

       rpc_$proto_error    An internal protocol error.
