- increment reference count of IRIS Explorer data type
void cxDataRefInc(void *data)
Pointer to any reference counted IRIS Explorer data type.
cxDataRefInc increments the data's reference count.
A module does not normally need to call cxDataRefInc, unless it
wants to process a piece of data later, after the present execution.
Incrementing the reference count
ensures that the data will not be deleted when new input
cxDataRefInc will also have to be called if a module inserts
cxData or cxCoord structures directly into a
cxLattice. Managing reference counts is discussed in more
detail in intro, but it is recommended that the routines such as
cxLatPtrSet be used instead for safety and upward compatibility.
See Appendix B of the IRIS Explorer Module Writer's Guide
for more information on reference counting.
