Namedt_mer_progob_compareparams - retrieve parameter names and default values for a program object comparison
Generic Prototypedt_mer_progob_compareparams(dt_Handle, dt_Integer) => dt_Handle
C Prototype#include "dt_merlin.h"
dt_Handle dt_mer_progob_compareparams(dt_Handle server, dt_Integer iprogob)
FORTRAN Prototypeinclude 'dt_f_merlin.inc'
integer*4 dt_f_mer_progob_compareparams(server, iprogob)
Asks a program object, via the Merlin server, to report the names and default values for the parameters used by the function dt_mer_progob_compare(..., parameters)
It is up to the program object to decide what to return for this function, but the convention is to return the parameters names, followed by the default value in parentheses. For example, a fingerprint-computing program object might return "FP minsize (2048)".
There may be several program objects associated with a particular server; the parameter "iprogob" indicates which one is to perform the computation: program objects are referred to by index, beginning with the first (index 0) to the Nth (index N-1), in the same order as the names returned by dt_mer_progob_getnames(3).
Return ValueReturns a sequence of string objects containing the parameter's names, as reported by the program object, or NULL_OB if there are no parameters.
