Parsing Property Lists

The recommended way to parse a property list is to use one of the property list parsing functions to locate a specific type of value. Both cluster-aware applications and resource DLLs can use these functions.

If no parsing function exists for the type of data you are seeking, you can parse the property list with CLUSPROP_BUFFER_HELPER (see Using CLUSPROP_BUFFER_HELPER).
