LIBRARY

Kerberos 5 Library (libkrb5, -lkrb5)  

SYNOPSIS

In krb5.h

DESCRIPTION

The krb5_data structure holds a data element. The structure contains two public accessible elements Fa length (the length of data) and Fa data (the data itself). The structure must always be initiated and freed by the functions documented in this manual.

Fn krb5_data_zero resets the content of Fa p .

Fn krb5_data_free free the data in Fa p and reset the content of the structure with Fn krb5_data_zero .

Fn krb5_free_data_contents works the same way as Fa krb5_data_free . The diffrence is that krb5_free_data_contents is more portable (exists in MIT api).

Fn krb5_free_data frees the data in Fa p and Fa p itself.

Fn krb5_data_alloc allocates Fa len bytes in Fa p . Returns 0 or an error.

Fn krb5_data_realloc reallocates the length of Fa p to the length in Fa len . Returns 0 or an error.

Fn krb5_data_copy copies the Fa data that have the length Fa len into Fa p . Fa p is not freed so the calling function should make sure the Fa p doesn't contain anything needs to be freed. Returns 0 or an error.

Fn krb5_copy_data copies the krb5_data in Fa indata to Fa outdata . Fa outdata is not freed so the calling function should make sure the Fa outdata doesn't contain anything needs to be freed. Fa outdata should be freed using Fn krb5_free_data . Returns 0 or an error.

Fn krb5_data_cmp will compare two data object and check if they are the same in a simular way as memcmp does it. The return value can be used for sorting.
