NAME
       DtInfo_ShowInfoAtLoc -- display a specified section or topic

SYNOPSIS
       DtInfo_ShowInfoAtLoc
	       Class:  TT_REQUEST
	       File:  filename
	       Operation:  DtInfo_LoadInfoLib
	       Address:	 TT_PROCEDURE
	       Handler_ptype:  DtInfo
	       Disposition:  TT_START
	       Scope:  TT_SESSION
	       Status:	0 = OK,	1 = FAIL

DESCRIPTION
       The DtInfo_ShowInfoAtLoc	request	is a process-oriented ToolTalk message
       that causes dtinfo to display a particular section of  data  or	topic.
       ToolTalk	 starts	 the browser if	it is not already running. This	corre-
       sponds to invoking dtinfo with the -sect	option from the	command	line.

ARGUMENTS
       ARG0 action
		 Name of the action to invoke to  start	 dtinfo	 on  a	remote
		 host, if necessary.  Mode is TT_IN; type is string.

       ARG1 exec_host
		 Name of the host from which the specified infolib is accessi-
		 ble.  Mode is TT_IN; type is string.

       ARG2 locale
		 Required locale.  Mode	is TT_IN; type is string.

       ARG3 section
		 Specifies the infolib section,	in generalized locator format.
		 A  generalized	 locator  format  provides applications	with a
		 mechamism for addressing  infolibs  as	 document  collections
		 with  external	 navigation references.	This mechanism is more
		 precise than those which operate on an	infolib	 at  the  file
		 level,	 and  is required by applications that want to tightly
		 integrate to their online documentation.  For	more  informa-
		 tion, see "Generalized	Locator	Format"	in dtinfo(1).

ATTRIBUTES
       File filename
		 Specifies  a  file path, relative or absolute,	to an informa-
		 tion library.	If the filename	is not specified, the  browser
		 displays the default information library(s).
