$direction = $session->getArgDirection( $class, $operation, $argname )

The getArgDirection() function gets a flag to indicate whether the specified operation argument is an IN or OUT argument:

  • IN arguments are denoted by the value 0 and refer to argument values passed from the script to the Domain Manager.

  • OUT arguments are denoted by the value 1 and refer to variables into which the operation puts result information.

    Nearly all arguments to all operations of all classes are IN arguments.


    OUT arguments are not supported by the remote access protocol, which is beyond the scope of the API, dmctl, and ASL.

    $direction = $session->getArgDirection(
        "Router", "getFan", "identifier" );
