odm_rm_by_id Subroutine


Removes objects specified by their IDs from an ODM object class.


Object Data Manager Library (libodm.a)


#include <odmi.h>

int odm_rm_by_id( ClassSymbol ObjectID)
int ObjectID;


The odm_rm_by_id subroutine is called to delete an object from an object class. The object to be deleted is specified by passing its object ID from its corresponding ClassName structure.


ClassSymbol Identifies a class symbol returned from an odm_open_class subroutine. If the odm_open_class subroutine has not been called, this is the ClassName_CLASS structure that was created by the odmcreate command.
ObjectID Identifies the object. This information is retrieved from the corresponding ClassName structure of the object class.

Return Values

Upon successful completion, a value of 0 is returned. If the odm_rm_by_id subroutine is unsuccessful, a value of -1 is returned and the odmerrno variable is set to an error code.

Error Codes

Failure of the odm_rm_by_id subroutine sets the odmerrno variable to one of the following error codes:

See Appendix B, ODM Error Codes in AIX 5L Version 5.1 Technical Reference: Base Operating System and Extensions Volume 1 for explanations of the ODM error codes.
