NAME¶gss_release_buffer - API function
OM_uint32 gss_release_buffer(OM_uint32 * minor_status, gss_buffer_t buffer);
- OM_uint32 * minor_status
- (integer, modify) Mechanism specific status code.
- gss_buffer_t buffer
- (buffer, modify) 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.
DESCRIPTION¶Free storage associated with a buffer. The storage must have been allocated by a GSS-API routine. In addition to freeing the associated storage, the routine will zero the length field in the descriptor to which the buffer parameter refers, and implementations are encouraged to additionally 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).
RETURN VALUE¶`GSS_S_COMPLETE`: Successful completion.
