Initializes the interface and allocates internal memory.
|[out]||handle||SME Integer handle required by all other SME functions.|
- Return values
SME_Initialize allocates internal memory and prepares the SME interface. After using the SME interface, it is necessary to explicitly call SME_Cleanup() to avoid memory leaks.
- The SME handle returned by SME_Initialize is compatible with only the functions beginning with SME_. The SME API was written only to locate and configure Ethernet enabled Sealevel I/O modules. In order to read or write to a particular SeaI/O module, the standard SeaMAX SM_ functions should be used, after opening the module with SM_Open() and acquiring a SM handle.
