DESCRIPTION
     The ppath_number routines read, write, or delete integers in a property
     list by path.

FUNCTIONS
     ppath_number provides these functions for manipulating integers in a
     property list by the integers' paths:

     ppath_copydel_int64(prop_object_t o, prop_object_t *op, const ppath_t *p)

     ppath_copydel_uint64(prop_object_t o, prop_object_t *op, const ppath_t
            *p)
            Create a copy of the property list o at *op.  Delete from the copy
            the prop_number_t named by p.

            If *op is NULL, ppath_copydel_int64() and ppath_copydel_uint64()
            create a shallow copy of o at *op.  If *op is not NULL,
            ppath_copydel_int64() and ppath_copydel_uint64() expect for *op to
            be an existing shallow copy of o.

            For the purposes of ppath_copydel_int64() and
            ppath_copydel_uint64(), *op is a shallow copy of property list o
            if equal properties at equal paths are shared between the two.
            Before ppath_copydel_int64() and ppath_copydel_uint64() modify a
            property shared by *op and o, they create a private copy of the
            property for *op.

     ppath_copyset_int64(prop_object_t o, prop_object_t *op, const ppath_t *p,
            int64_t v)

     ppath_copyset_uint64(prop_object_t o, prop_object_t *op, const ppath_t
            *p, uint64_t v)
            Create a copy of the property list o at *op.  In the copy, replace
            with v the prop_number_t named by p.

            If *op is NULL, ppath_copyset_int64() and ppath_copyset_uint64()
            create a shallow copy of o at *op.  If *op is not NULL,
            ppath_copyset_int64() and ppath_copyset_uint64() expect for *op to
            be an existing shallow copy of o.

            For the purposes of ppath_copyset_int64() and
            ppath_copyset_uint64(), *op is a shallow copy of property list o
            if equal properties at equal paths are shared between the two.
            Before ppath_copydel_int64() and ppath_copydel_uint64() modify a
            property shared by *op and o, they create a private copy of the
            property for *op.

     ppath_set_int64(prop_object_t o, const ppath_t *p, int64_t v)

     ppath_set_uint64(prop_object_t o, const ppath_t *, uint64_t v)
            Replace with v the prop_number_t in o named by p.

     ppath_get_int64(prop_object_t o, const ppath_t *p, int64_t *vp)

     ppath_get_uint64(prop_object_t o, const ppath_t *p, uint64_t *vp)
            Retrieve the prop_number_t named by p from o, and write it to *vp.

     ppath_delete_int64(prop_object_t o, const ppath_t *p)

     ppath_delete_uint64(prop_object_t o, const ppath_t *p)
            Delete the prop_number_t named by p from o.  ppath_delete_int64()
            and ppath_delete_uint64() decrease by one the deleted number's
            reference count.

RETURN VALUES
     ppath_number routines return 0 on success, and non-zero on error.

ERRORS
     [EFTYPE]           A ppath_number operation returns EFTYPE when the
                        object named by the path is not a prop_number_t.

     [ENOENT]           ppath_number routines return ENOENT if the path p does
                        not exist in o.

     [ENOMEM]           ppath_set_int64(), ppath_set_uint64(),
                        ppath_copyset_int64(), and ppath_copyset_uint64()
                        return ENOMEM if there was insufficient memory to
                        complete the operation.
