Description

The context argument is a value returned from a previous call to pmStart(3) and on successful return from pmiUseContext, the current context will have been changed to the one identified by context.

Diagnostics

pmiUseContext returns zero on success else a negative value that can be turned into an error message by calling pmiErrStr(3).
