       The atBind module maintains an  internal  database  storing  all  known
       version bind rules.

       The  atBindAddRule function stores a new rule in the internal database.
       It expects the rule name, optionally including  parameter  definitions,
       and  the  rule  body  as  string  arguments. Additionally, the filename
       (srcFile) of the file, where the rule is read from, and the line within
       that  file  (srcLine),  may be given. This is used for producing proper
       error messages. atBindAddRule returns -1 on error, 0 otherwise.

       atBindDelRule removes a  previously  defined  rule  from  the  internal
       database.  It  returns  a negative return value (-1), when no rule with
       the given name was not found in the internal database.

       The atBindRuleFile function scans a file containing version bind  rules
       and  adds all contained rules to the internal database.  It returns the
       number of  version  bind  rules  successfully  added  to  the  internal
       database. A zero return value may also indicate an error.

       The  switch  atBindDisplayErrors  may  be  set  TRUE  to  enable  error
       reporting during parsing of version binding rules. Error messages  will
       be  written  directly to standard error. Initially, atBindDisplayErrors
       is set FALSE.

       AtBindTestRule reports whether ruleName is defined as  version  binding
       rule  or  not.  It  returns  a  non  zero (TRUE) value when the name is
       defined, otherwise FALSE.

       atBindShowRules dumps the internal database  to  the  standard  output.
       Return value is always TRUE.

       atBindListRules  returns  all known bind rule names in a list. The list
       memory is allocated by use  of  malloc(3).  On  error,  atBindListRules
       returns a null pointer.


       Upon error, each routine returns a null value, the variable atBindError
       is set true (non-zero), and an explaining  message  is  copied  to  the
       atBindErrorMsg  string buffer. The atBindError variable is cleared upon
       successful calls, the message buffer remains unchanged.


       SHAPETOOLS - list of path names as search space  for  files  containing
       version  bind  rules.  The  bind  rule  files  must be named BindRules.
       Default path is /usr/local/lib/shape.
