Send Unwrapped Fix Forwarded Events to Netview

      Disclosed is a design that can be used by the LAN NetView* Tie
and other LAN NetView applications to remove a CMIP wrapper from
events that are forwarded by LAN NetView Fix.

      IBM LAN NetView Fix wraps events in a CMIP wrapper prior to
forwarding them to LAN NetView Tie and other LAN NetView
applications.  Before LAN NetView Tie and other LAN NetView
applications can make use of the event information, the CMIP wrapper
must be removed from the event.

      The application must first detect that the events are Fix
forwarded events wrapped in a CMIP wrapper.  LAN NetView Fix provides
a routine (EventIt) that checks the event type of the public event.
If this event type is Event Forwarding, the EventIt routine returns a
return code of 1 and places the event information field of this event
into the second input parameter.  If the event type is not Event
Forwarding, the EvenIt routine returns a return code of 0, places the
event information into the second input parameter, and places the
event type into the third input parameter.  The syntax of the call
for this routine is as follows:
  int     EventIt(OM_public_object,
            OM_object*,
            OM_object_identifier* );

      After the LAN NetView application detects that a Fix Forwarded
Event has been received, the application needs to get the original
emitted event, which can be obtained from the second input par...
