cc [ flag ... ] file ... –lsasl [ library ... ] #include <sasl/sasl.h> int sasl_listmech(sasl_conn_t *conn, const char *user, const char *prefix, const char *sep, const char *suffix, const char **result, unsigned *plen,int *pcount);
The sasl_listmech() interface returns a string listing the SASL names of all the mechanisms available to the specified user. This call is typically given to the client through a capability command or initial server response. Client applications need this list so that they know what mechanisms the server supports.
The SASL context for this connection user restricts the mechanism list to those mechanisms available to the user. This parameter is optional.
Restricts security mechanisms to those available to that user. The value of user may be NULL, and it is not used if called by the client application.
Appended to the beginning of result.
Appended between mechanisms.
Appended to the end of result.
A null-terminated result string. result must be allocated or freed by the library.
The length of the result filled in by the library. The value of plen may be NULL.
The number of mechanisms available. The value of pcount is filled in by the library. The value of pcount may be NULL
sasl_listmech() returns an integer that corresponds to a SASL error code.
