Removes an object class from the file system.
Object Data Manager Library (libodm.a)
int odm_rm_class (ClassSymbol) CLASS_SYMBOL ClassSymbol;
The odm_rm_class subroutine removes an object class from the file system. All objects in the specified class are deleted.
|ClassSymbol||Identifies a class symbol returned from the odm_open_class subroutine. If the odm_open_class subroutine has not been called, this is the ClassName_CLASS structure created by the odmcreate command.|
Upon successful completion, a value of 0 is returned. If the odm_rm_class subroutine is unsuccessful, a value of -1 is returned and the odmerrno variable is set to an error code.
Failure of the odm_rm_class subroutine sets the odmerrno variable to one of the following error codes:
|The specified object class does not exist. Check path name and permissions.|
|The object class cannot be opened because of the file permissions.|
|Either the specified collection is not a valid object class collection or the collection does not contain consistent data.|
|The specified path does not exist on the file system. Make sure the path is accessible.|
|The class symbol does not identify a valid object class.|
|Cannot open the object class. Check path name and permissions.|
|Too many object classes have been accessed. An application can only access less than 1024 object classes.|
|Cannot remove the object class from the file system. Check path name and permissions.|
|Cannot remove the object class collection from the file system. Check path name and permissions.|
