sm_tp_gen_sel_return returns a list of fields that can be used as an output argument for a service request implementing a SELECT. or VIEW operation. The fields are on the current screen and are used for the returned select set of the database operation.

The list is returned in a temporary buffer whose contents remain valid until the next call to a sm_tp_gen_ function. So, you should use or save the return data immediately. When the last sm_tp_gen_ function is called, free the memory allocated for the buffer with sm_tp_free_arg_buf.
