 DtDtsDataTypeToAttributeList(libraDrtyDtcsaDlalt)aTypeToAttributeList(library call)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      DtDtsDataTypeToAttributeList - get a list of attributes for a data

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      #include <Dt/Dts.h>
      DtDtsAttribute **DtDtsDataTypeToAttributeList(
      const char *datatype,
      const char *opt_name);

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The DtDtsDataTypeToAttributeList function returns a list of attributes
      for a data type.

      The datatype argument is a pointer to a data type name string.

      The opt_name argument can be used to specify a name to be associated
      with the data type.  If the opt_name argument is not NULL, it is used
      as a pseudo file name in typing; otherwise, certain attributes may be
      returned as NULL because the filename components could not be

 RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]
      Upon successful completion, the DtDtsDataTypeToAttributeList function
      returns a NULL-terminated array of pointers of *DtDtsAttribute, or
      NULL if no value could be determined.

 APPLICATION USAGE    [Toc]    [Back]
      The application should use the DtDtsFreeAttributeList(3) function to
      release the memory for the returned value.

      The opt_name argument is useful when the attribute being returned
      contains a modifier string that depends on having a file name
      included.  For example, if the INSTANCE_ICON attribute had the value
      %name%.icon, opt_name would be used to derive the %name% portion of
      the attribute value.  See dtdtsfile(4).

 SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]
      Dt/Dts.h, DtDtsLoadDataTypes(3), DtDtsFreeAttributeList(3).
