Appendix C. Sproc Specific Layer Rules

The Sproc Specific Layer sends sets of generic structural objects to the Sproc Generic Layer. They must map arbitrary service requests with arbitrary parameters to the generic structure object format. This appendix explains how this can be done.

Assume that a message definition is given in Sproc Interface Format, defined in Appendix D. The algorithm below handles only one message, but is modified in a straightforward way to accomodate multiple messages. Alias types are not explicitly handled below.


Also, in the algorithm, let:

Given msg, do:

where add_param (num, param_name, value, type) is defined as:
