- create a copy of an internal name
cc [flag …] file… -lgss [library …] #include <gssapi/gssapi.h> OM_uint32 gss_duplicate_name(OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_name_t src_name,gss_name_t *dest_name);
The gss_duplicate_name() function creates an exact duplicate of the existing internal name src_name. The new dest_name will be independent of the src_name. The src_name and dest_name must both be released, and the release of one does not affect the validity of the other.
The parameter descriptions for gss_duplicate_name() follow:
A mechanism-specific status code.
Internal name to be duplicated.
The resultant copy of src_name. Storage associated with this name must be freed by the application after use with a call to gss_release_name(3GSS).
The gss_duplicate_name() function may return the following status codes:
The src_name parameter was ill-formed.
The underlying mechanism detected an error for which no specific GSS status code is defined. The mechanism-specific status code reported by means of the minor_status parameter details the error condition.
