Function : Note
NSFNoteGetAuthor - Return the author of the note.

#include <nsfnote.h>

    NOTEHANDLE  hNote,
    char far *retName,
    WORD far *retNameLength,
    BOOL far *retIsItMe);
Description :

Given a handle to an open note, return the first author item for the note. If the pointer argument retIsItMe is non-NULL, this routine will also compare the author item to the current user's name, and store the result at that address.

Parameters : Input : hNote - Handle to an open note.

Output : (routine) - Return status from this call:

NOERROR - Success

ERR_ITEM_NOT_FOUND - No author was found for this note.

ERR_xxx - Errors returned by lower level Notes functions: (memory management, file operations, network errors, etc.). There are so many possible causes, that it is best to use the code in a call to OSLoadString and display/log the error for the user as your default error handling.

retName - Optional - if not NULL, the first author item is written to this address. retName is not null-terminated.

retNameLength - Number of bytes in the first author item.

retIsItMe - Optional - if this pointer is non-NULL, TRUE is stored if the author item is the same as the current user, FALSE if not.
