GSS_RELEASE_BUFFER(3)	      Programmer's Manual	 GSS_RELEASE_BUFFER(3)

NAME
     gss_release_buffer — Discard a buffer

SYNOPSIS
     #include <gssapi/gssapi.h>

     OM_uint32
     gss_release_buffer(OM_uint32 *minor_status, gss_buffer_t buffer);

DESCRIPTION
     Free storage associated with a buffer.  The storage must have been allo‐
     cated by a GSS-API routine.  In addition to freeing the associated stor‐
     age, the routine will zero the length field in the descriptor to which
     the buffer parameter refers, and implementations are encouraged to addi‐
     tionally set the pointer field in the descriptor to NULL.	Any buffer
     object returned by a GSS-API routine may be passed to
     gss_release_buffer() (even if there is no storage associated with the
     buffer).

PARAMETERS
     minor_status  Mechanism specific status code.

     buffer	   The storage associated with the buffer will be deleted.
		   The gss_buffer_desc object will not be freed, but its
		   length field will be zeroed.

RETURN VALUES
     GSS_S_COMPLETE
		   Successful completion

STANDARDS
