active-client-ports

Arguments: dde-info

Returns a list of client-port objects representing the connections that the Lisp process of the argument dde-info has made (and not yet closed) with other applications that are acting as DDE servers. Call dde-info to retrieve the dde-info object for a particular process to pass to this function.

The client-port accessor functions port-name, port-topic, and port-application may be called on each of the objects in the returned list to retrieve information about each DDE connection.

Compatibility note: Prior to release 6.1, this information was contained in a global variable (*active-client-ports*), but that design did not allow the DDE facility to work in multiple processes other than Common Graphics processes. So the variable was changed incompatibly to this function. Any application that used the *active-client-ports* variable must change the reference to a call to active-client-ports.

See dde.htm for information about DDE support.
