Sets the default path for locating object classes.
Object Data Manager Library (libodm.a)
char *odm_set_path ( NewPath)
The odm_set_path subroutine is used to set the default path for locating object classes. The subroutine allocates memory, sets the default path, and returns the pointer to memory. Once the operation is complete, the calling application should free the pointer using the free (malloc, free, realloc, calloc, mallopt, mallinfo, alloca, or valloc Subroutine) subroutine.
|NewPath||Contains, as a string, the path name in the file system in which to locate object classes.|
Upon successful completion, a string pointing to the previous default path is returned. If the odm_set_path subroutine is unsuccessful, a value of -1 is returned and the odmerrno variable is set to an error code.
Failure of the odm_set_path subroutine sets the odmerrno variable to one of the following error codes:
