Releases a lock put on a path name.
Object Data Manager Library (libodm.a)
int odm_unlock (LockID) int LockID;
The odm_unlock subroutine releases a previously granted lock on a path name. This path name can be a directory containing subdirectories and object classes.
|LockID||Identifies the lock returned from the odm_lock subroutine.|
Upon successful completion a value of 0 is returned. If the odm_unlock subroutine is unsuccessful, a value of -1 is returned and the odmerrno variable is set to an error code.
Failure of the odm_unlock subroutine sets the odmerrno variable to one of the following error codes:
|The lock identifier does not refer to a valid lock. The lock identifier must be the same as what was returned from the odm_lock subroutine.|
|Cannot unlock the lock file. Make sure the lock file exists.|
This subroutine is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
