Function

AEStreamOpenList

Marks the beginning of a descriptor list in an AEStreamRef.

Declaration

OSStatus AEStreamOpenList(AEStreamRef ref);

Parameters

ref

An AEStreamRef containing the stream data.

Return Value

A result code. See Result Codes.

Discussion

This routine marks the beginning of a sequence of zero or more descriptor definitions that you use to build an AEDescList structure. After calling this routine, you can write any number of AEDesc, AEDescList, or AERecord structures to the stream as elements of the list. When you are done, you must call AEStreamCloseList to complete the AEDescList definition.
