xdr_bool Subroutine


Translates between Booleans and their external representations.


C Library (libc.a)


#include <rpc/xdr.h>
xdr_bool (xdrs, bp)
XDR *xdrs;
bool_t *bp;


The xdr_bool subroutine is a filter primitive that translates between Booleans (C integers) and their external representations. When encoding data, this filter produces values of either 1 or 0.


xdrs Points to the eXternal Data Representation (XDR) stream handle.
bp Specifies the address of the Boolean data.

Return Values

Upon successful completion, this subroutine returns a value of 1. If unsuccessful, it returns a value of 0.

Implementation Specifics

This subroutine is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
