This part of ISO 10303 specifies a C programming language late binding of the capability specified in
ISO 10303-22 - Standard data access interface (SDAI). This binding is a late binding and as such, none
of the constants, data types, and functions depend on the application schema being accessed.
The following are within the scope of this part of ISO 10303:
— access to and manipulation of data types and entities which are specified in ISO 10303-22;
— convenience functions suitable to this language binding;
— late binding requirements specified in ISO 10303-22.
The following are outside the scope of this part of ISO 10303:
— memory arrangement of data structures used by implementations of this part of ISO 10303;
— early binding requirements as specified in ISO 10303-22;
— all items listed as out of scope in ISO 10303-22.
