Function

AEInitializeDesc

Initializes a new descriptor.

Declaration

void AEInitializeDesc(AEDesc *desc);

Parameters

desc

A pointer to a new descriptor. See AEDesc.

Discussion

The function sets the type of the descriptor to typeNull and sets the data handle to NULL. If you need to initialize a descriptor that already has some data in it, use AEDisposeDesc to deallocate the memory and initialize the descriptor.
