NAME

SLPFindScopes - return list of configured and discovered scopes  

SYNOPSIS

#include <slp.h>

SLPError SLPFindScopes(SLPHandle hSLP, char** ppcScopes);  

DESCRIPTION

The SLPFindScopes() function sets the ppcScopes parameter to a pointer to a comma-separated list including all available scope names. The list of scopes comes from a variety of sources: the configuration file, the net.slp.useScopes property and the net.slp.DAAddresses property, DHCP, or through the DA discovery process. If there is any order to the scopes, preferred scopes are listed before less desirable scopes. There is always at least one string
 in the  array, the  default  scope,  DEFAULT.

If no error occurs, SLPFindScopes() returns SLP_OK, otherwise, it returns the appropriate error code.  

PARAMETERS

hSLP The SLPHandle on which to search for scopes. hSLP cannot be NULL.

ppcScopes A pointer to a char pointer into which the buffer pointer is placed upon return. The buffer is null-terminated. The memory should be freed by calling SLPFree(). See SLPFree(3SLP)

 

ERRORS

This function or its callback may return any SLP error code. See the ERRORS section in slp_api(3SLP).  

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Finding Configured or Discovered Scopes

Use the following example to find configured or discovered scopes:

SLPHandle hSLP;
char *ppcScopes;
SLPError err;

error = SLPFindScopes(hSLP, & ppcScopes);
