DESCRIPTION

The net_protocol_walk() function walks through all of the network protocols that have been registered with this interface. The initial call to net_protocol_walk() should be made by passing in NULL as the value for net. When this function returns NULL, the end of the list has been reached.

A caller of net_protocol_walk() is required to walk through the entire list of network protocols, until NULL is returned or, when finished with using the value returned, pass it into a call to net_protocol_release(9F).  

RETURN VALUES

The net_protocol_walk() function returns NULL when the end of the list is returned. Otherwise, it returns a non-NULL value as a token for being passed into other function calls within this interface.  

CONTEXT
