prowti( ) - Write INTEGER Variable

The prowti( ) function writes an integer value to a shared INTEGER variable.
On successful completion, prowti( ) returns 0; otherwise, it returns a non-zero value:


prowti ( psymnam, index, var, unknown )
char *psymnam;
int index;
long var;
int unknown;
This input parameter points to the name of the specified shared variable. You supply the name from your OpenEdge application.
This input parameter specifies an index value for an array variable. If the variable is not an array, you must set the value of index to 0.
This input parameter contains the integer value for the specified INTEGER variable.
If this input parameter contains the value 1, the Unknown value (?) is assigned to the variable. If this input parameter contains the value 0, the input value contained in var is assigned to the variable.
