dt_fp_setobits - specify the number of bits in the unfolded fingerprint

Generic Prototype

dt_fp_setobits(dt_Handle, dt_Integer) => dt_Boolean

C Prototype

#include "dt_finger.h"

dt_Boolean dt_fp_setobits(dt_Handle fingerprint, dt_Integer count)

FORTRAN Prototype

include ''

logical dt_f_fp_setobits(fingerprint, count)

integer*4 fingerprint
integer*4 count


Sets the number of bits in the original fingerprint before folding. This is intended for use only with fingerprint objects created by dt_fp_allocfp(3) and filled manually; it allows you to store a folded fingerprint, then retrieve it and re-create the original fingerprint object.

Return Value

Returns the success (TRUE) or failure (FALSE) of the operation.
