gsasl_callback - API function


#include <gsasl.h>

int gsasl_callback(Gsasl * ctx, Gsasl_session * sctx, Gsasl_property prop);


handle received from gsasl_init(), may be NULL to derive it from sctx .
session handle.
enumerated value of Gsasl_property type.


Invoke the application callback. The prop value indicate what the callback is expected to do. For example, for GSASL_ANONYMOUS_TOKEN, the function is expected to invoke gsasl_property_set( SCTX , GSASL_ANONYMOUS_TOKEN, "token") where "token" is the anonymous token the application wishes the SASL mechanism to use. See the manual for the meaning of all parameters.

Note that if no callback has been set by the application, but the obsolete callback interface has been used, this function will translate the old callback interface into the new. This interface should be sufficient to invoke all callbacks, both new and old.

Return value: Returns whatever the application callback returns, or GSASL_NO_CALLBACK if no application was known.
