NAME

       lname_component - Interface that supports the name pseudo-objects.

DESCRIPTION

       This  interface is a part of the name library, which is used to hide the representation of
       names. In Orbers Erlang mapping the pseudo-object names and the real IDL  names  have  the
       same  representation  but  it is desirable that the clients uses the names library so they
       will not be dependent  of  the  representation.  The  lname_component  interface  supports
       handling of name components e.g. set and get of the struct members.

       Note  that  the  lname_component  interface  in  orber does not contain a destroy function
       because the NameComponents are represented as Erlang records and therefor will be  removed
       by the garbage collector when not in use.

       The type NameComponent used below is defined as:

             -record('CosNaming_NameComponent', {id, kind=""}).

       id and kind are strings.

       The record is defined in the file CosNaming.hrl and it is included with:

             -include_lib("orber/COSS/CosNaming/CosNaming.hrl").
