DESCRIPTION

       These  functions  retrieve information on a type definition (SMIng) or a simple ASN.1 type
       definition (SMIv1/v2) or a TEXTUAL-CONVENTION definition (SMIv2). Base types may  also  be
       retrieved by these functions.

       The  smiGetType()  function retrieves a struct SmiType that represents a type. Type may be
       either a fully qualified descriptor or a simple type name.  If smiModulePtr is not NULL it
       used  to  limit  the  search  to  the given module. If the type is not found, smiGetType()
       returns NULL.

       The smiGetFirstType() and smiGetNextType() functions  are  used  to  iteratively  retrieve
       struct  SmiTypes.  smiGetFirstType() returns the first one defined in the module specified
       by smiModulePtr. Subsequent calls to smiGetNextType() return the following ones.  If there
       are no more type definitions in the module NULL is returned.

       The smiGetParentType() function retrieves a struct SmiType of the type from which the type
       specified by smiTypePtr is derived. If there is no parent type (i.e. the type specified by
       smiTypePtr is a base type), smiGetParentType() returns NULL.

       Similarly,  the smiGetFirstRange() and smiGetNextRange() functions are used to iteratively
       retrieve struct SmiRanges that represent range  restrictions  of  the  type  specified  by
       smiTypePtr,  either  size  ranges  of  an  octet  string type or value ranges in case of a
       numeric type.

       Similarly, the smiGetFirstNamedNumber() and smiGetNextNamedNumber() functions are used  to
       iteratively  retrieve  struct  SmiNamedNumbers  that  represent  named numbers of the type
       specified by smiTypePtr, which has to be either a bit set or an enumeration type.

       The smiGetTypeModule() function returns the module that defines the type given  by  struct
       SmiTypePtr.

       The  smiGetTypeLine()  function  returns  the line number within the module where the type
       specified by smiTypePtr is defined.
