Name Syntax Constants

RPC Name Syntax Defined Constants lists defined constant values that specify name syntax. These can be used with RPC routines that take a name_syntax argument.

Constant Value Description
rpc_c_ns_syntax_default 0 Default syntax
rpc_c_ns_syntax_dce 3 OSF DCE name syntax

Table: RPC Name Syntax Defined Constants

When the RPC_DEFAULT_ENTRY_SYNTAX environment variable is defined, its value determines the default syntax. When it is not defined, the RPC run-time system uses the rpc_c_ns_syntax_dce name syntax as the default. The syntaxes that correspond to these values will be specified in the DCE: Directory Services specification.

Please note that the html version of this specification may contain formatting aberrations. The definitive version is available as an electronic publication on CD-ROM from The Open Group.
