gsasl_check_version - API function


#include <gsasl.h>

const char * gsasl_check_version(const char * req_version);


version string to compare with, or NULL.


Check GNU SASL Library version.

See GSASL_VERSION for a suitable req_version string.

This function is one of few in the library that can be used without a successful call to gsasl_init().

Return value: Check that the version of the library is at minimum the one given as a string in req_version and return the actual version string of the library; return NULL if the condition is not met. If NULL is passed to this function no check is done and only the version string is returned.
