gss_display_status(3)					 gss_display_status(3)

       gss_display_status()  -	provide an application with the textual repre‐
       sentation of a GSSAPI status code that can be displayed to  a  user  or
       used for logging


       The  routine  provides the context initiator with a textual representa‐
       tion of a status code so that the application can display  the  message
       to  a user or log the message.  Because some status values can indicate
       more than one error, the routine enables	 the  calling  application  to
       process status codes with multiple messages.

       The  message_context parameter indicates which error message the appli‐
       cation should extract from the status_value parameter.  The first  time
       an application calls the routine, it should initialize the message_con‐
       text parameter to 0 (zero) and return the first message.	 If there  are
       additional  messages  to read, the routine returns a nonzero value. The
       application can call repeatedly to generate a single  text  string  for
       each call.

   Input Parameters
       status_value	     Specifies the status value to convert.

       status_type	     Specifies one of the following status types:
			     Major status - GSS status code

			     Minor status - mechanism status code eg. Kerberos

       mech_type	     Specifies the underlying security mechanism. Sup‐
			     ply to obtain the system default.

       message_context	     Indicates whether the status  code	 has  multiple
			     messages  to read.	 The first time an application
			     calls the routine, you initialize	the  parameter
			     to	 0 (zero).  The routine returns the first mes‐
			     sage.  If there are more  messages,  the  routine
			     sets  the	parameter  to  a  nonzero  value.  The
			     application calls the routine repeatedly  to  get
			     the   next	 message,  until  the  message_context
			     parameter is zero again.

       status_string	     Returns the status value as a text message.

       minor_status	     Returns a status code from	 the  security	mecha‐

       The following status codes can be returned:

       The routine was completed successfully.

       The translation requires a mechanism that is unsupported
				or unavailable.

       Indicates either the status value was not recognized or
				the status type was something other than or

       The routine failed.  Check the
				minor_status for details.
