Function : OS Blocks
OSUnlockBlock - Unlock a BLOCKID memory block.

#include <pool.h>

    BLOCKID  blockid);
Description :

OSUnlockBlock is called to indicate that an application no longer needs physical access to the specified BLOCKID memory object. The lock count on the block is then decremented, and the calling application must then assume that the physical address for that object is no longer valid. A BLOCKID must be fully unlocked (reference count = 0) before it can be deallocated. Note that in the case of BLOCKIDs, operations such as closing Notes or databases require the corresponding BLOCKIDs to be fully unlocked.

Calling this routine with a BLOCKID that is invalid or out of range will result in a Notes PANIC halt .

Note -- this function is actually implemented as a macro: #define OSUnlockBlock(blockid) \ OSUnlockObject((blockid).pool)

Parameters : Input : blockid - BLOCKID for the block to be unlocked.

Output : (routine) - Always returns TRUE.

Sample Usage :

       /* Unlock the CD Temp Buffer */
       if (CleanUp_State & UNLOCK_EXPCDBID)
