int odm_rm_obj ( ClassSymbol, Criteria)
The odm_rm_obj subroutine deletes objects from an object class.
|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.|
|Criteria||Contains as a string the qualifying criteria for selecting the objects to remove.|
Upon successful completion, the number of objects deleted is returned. If the odm_rm_obj subroutine is unsuccessful, a value of -1 is returned and the odmerrno variable is set to an error code.
Failure of the odm_rm_obj 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.
