 t_free(3)                                                         t_free(3)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      t_free() - free a library structure

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      #include <xti.h>            /* for X/OPEN Transport Interface - XTI */
      /* or */
      #include <tiuser.h>         /* for Transport Layer Interface - TLI  */

      int t_free (ptr, struct_type);
      char *ptr;
      int struct_type;

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The t_free() function frees memory previously allocated by t_alloc().
      This function will free memory for the specified structure and will
      also free memory for buffers referenced by the structure.

      The argument ptr points to one of the seven structure types described
      for t_alloc().  struct_type identifies the type of that structure
      which must be one of the following:

           T_BIND     struct     t_bind
           T_CALL     struct     t_call
           T_OPTMGMT  struct     t_optmgmt
           T_DIS      struct     t_discon
           T_UNITDATA struct     t_unitdata
           T_UDERROR  struct     t_uderr
           T_INFO     struct     t_info

      where each of these structures is used as an argument to one or more
      transport functions.

      t_free() will check the addr, opt, and udata fields of the given
      structure (as appropriate) and free the buffers pointed to by the buf
      field of the netbuf structure.  If buf is a null pointer, t_free()
      will not attempt to free memory.  After all buffers are freed,
      t_free() will free the memory associated with the structure pointed to
      by ptr.

      Undefined results will occur if ptr or any of the buf pointers points
      to a block of memory that was not previously allocated by t_alloc().

    Thread-Safeness    [Toc]    [Back]
      The t_free() function is safe to be called by multithreaded
      applications, and it is thread-safe for both POSIX Threads and DCE
      User Threads.  It is neither async-cancel safe nor async-signal safe.
      Finally, it is not fork-safe.

    Valid States    [Toc]    [Back]
      All - apart from T_UNINIT

 RETURN VALUE    [Toc]    [Back]
      Upon successful completion, a value of 0 is returned.  Otherwise, a
      value of -1 is returned, and t_errno is set to indicate the error.

 ERRORS    [Toc]    [Back]
      On failure, t_errno is set to the following:

      [TSYSERR]           A system error has occurred during execution of
                          this function.

      [TNOSTRUCTYPE]      Unsupported struct_type requested.

      [TPROTO]            (XTI only) This error indicates that a
                          communication problem has been detected between
                          XTI and the transport provider for which there is
                          no suitable XTI (t_errno).
