Initialize the ACE Service Configurator. This is a one-shot method, i.e., it can be called multiple times but it will only do its work once. It does, however, track the number of times it's called (see
open_services()). It is fully thread-safe.
0 if successful,
errno set if failure.
- You can provide your program a set of default `svc.conf' entries by setting ignore_default_svc_conf_file to non-zero and use
default_svc_conf_entries() before calling
open_services(). In addition, you can skip_service_config_open altogether, which used to be important when the ORB is linked in via the ACE_Service_Configurator, since the ACE_Service_Configurator was non-reentrant. However, the ACE_Service_Configurator is now reentrant meaning that it is really no longer necessary to do so.
