prowtl( ) - Write LOGICAL Variable

The prowtl( ) function writes a Boolean value to a shared LOGICAL variable.
On successful completion, prowtl( ) returns 0; otherwise, it returns a non-zero value:


prowtl ( psymnam, index, var, unknown )
char *psymnam;
int index;
int 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 boolean value for the specified LOGICAL variable. Set var to 1 if you want to assign the value of the variable to TRUE; set it to 0 otherwise.
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.
