Seeking System Services?

The Question is:

I want to change a process name by my C-code. I'll not use the DCL command "SET
 PROCESS /NAME ... ". Is there a library call ?

The Answer is :

  Please review the OpenVMS Programming Concepts manual, and the
  available system service reference manual and the RTL manuals.
  In this case, please see the sys$setprn system service documentation,
  and -- depending on exactly how the application process involved here
  is created -- the sys$creprc system service or the lib$spawn run-time
  library documentation.
  For information on coding in C on OpenVMS (including code examples,
  use of string descriptors, and related materials), please see the
  OpenVMS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), the OpenVMS C documentation,
  the OpenVMS Programming Concepts manual, and other available resources.
  For common coding bugs, please see Ask The Wizard (ATW) topic (1661)
  and the other ATW topics referenced there.
