- convert an OID to a string
cc [ flag... ] file... -lgss [ library... ] #include <gssapi/gssapi.h> gss_oid_to_str(OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_OID oid, gss_buffer_toid_str);
Status code returned by underlying mechanism.
GSS-API OID structure to convert.
String to receive converted OID.
The gss_oid_to_str() function converts a GSS-API OID structure to a string. You can use the function to convert the name of a mechanism from an OID to a simple string. This function is a convenience function, as is its complementary function, gss_str_to_oid(3GSS).
If an OID must be created, use gss_create_empty_oid_set(3GSS) and gss_add_oid_set_member(3GSS) to create it. OIDs created in this way must be released with gss_release_oid_set(3GSS). However, it is strongly suggested that applications use the default GSS-API mechanism instead of creating an OID for a specific mechanism.
The gss_oid_to_str() function returns one of the following status codes:
A required input parameter could not be read.
A required output parameter could not be written.
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.

This function is included for compatibility only with programs using earlier versions of the GSS-API and should not be used for new programs. Other implementations of the GSS-API might not support this function, so portable programs should not rely on it. Sun might not continue to support this function.
