 DtDtsDataTypeToAttributeValue(libDrtaDrtysDcaatlalT)ypeToAttributeValue(library call)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      DtDtsDataTypeToAttributeValue - get an attribute value for a specified
      data type

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

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The DtDtsDataTypeToAttributeValue returns an attribute value for the
      specified data type name.

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

      The attr_name argument is a name of the attribute.

      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 DtDtsDataTypeToAttributeValue function
      returns a pointer to a data attribute value string, or NULL if no
      value could be determined.

 APPLICATION USAGE    [Toc]    [Back]
      The application should use the DtDtsFreeAttributeValue(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).

 EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]
      The following takes a list of files as arguments and determines the
      description and actions for each file:

      #include <Dt/Dts.h>
      #define ATTRIBUTE1      "DESCRIPTION"
      #define ATTRIBUTE2      "ACTIONS"
      main (int argc, char **argv)
              char    *attribute;
              char    *datatype;
