#include <smi.h>

SmiIdentity *smiGetIdentity(SmiModule *smiModulePtr, char *name);
SmiIdentity *smiGetFirstIdentity(SmiModule *smiModulePtr);
SmiIdentity *smiGetNextIdentity(SmiIdentity *smiIdentityPtr);
SmiIdentity *smiGetParentIdentity(SmiIdentity *smiIdentityPtr);
SmiModule *smiGetIdentityModule(SmiType *smiIdentityPtr); typedef struct SmiIdentity { SmiIdentifier name; SmiDecl decl; SmiStatus status; char *description; char *reference; } SmiIdentity;


These functions retrieve information on a SMIng identity definition (SMIng).

smiGetIdentity(SmiModule *smiModulePtr,char *name) returns a pointer to struct SmiIdentity for the identity with the given name in the given module(smiModulePtr), or NULL if the idenity with the given name does not exist

smiGetFirstIdentity(SmiModule *smiModulePtr) and smiGetNextIdentity(SmiIdentity *smiIdentityPtr) are used to iterate through the identities of the module given by smiModulePtr. They return a pointer to struct SmiIdentity hat represents an identity or NULL if there are no identities left in the module, or error has occurred.

smiGetIdentityModule(SmiIdentity *smiIdentityPtr) returns a pointer to struct SmiModule, of the module containing the given identity.

smiGetParentIdentity(SmiIdentity *smiIdentityPtr) returns a pointer to struct SmiIdentity pointing to the parent of the given smiIdentityPtr, or NULL if the Identity is not derived.
