NAME [Toc] [Back]
tt_message_receive - receive a message
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
The tt_message_receive function returns a handle for the next message
queued to be delivered to the process and also runs any message or
pattern callbacks applicable to the queued message.
If the return value of tt_message_status(3) for this message is
TT_WRN_START_MESSAGE, the ToolTalk service started the process to
deliver the queued message; the process must reply to this message.
If the return value of tt_message_receive is zero, no message is
RETURN VALUE [Toc] [Back]
Upon successful completion, the tt_message_receive function returns
the handle for the message object. The application can use
tt_ptr_error(3) to extract one of the following Tt_status values from
the returned handle:
TT_OK The operation completed successfully.
The ttsession(1) process is not running and the ToolTalk
service cannot restart it.
APPLICATION USAGE [Toc] [Back]
A zero value can occur if a message or pattern callback processes the
message. It can also occur if the interval is too long between the
time the file descriptor became active and the tt_message_receive call
was made. In the latter case, the ToolTalk service will time out and
offer the message to another process.
The application should use tt_free(3) to free any data stored in the
address returned by the ToolTalk API.
