       gsasl_simple_getpass - API function


       #include <gsasl.h>

       int gsasl_simple_getpass(const char * filename, const char * username, char ** key);


       const char * filename
                   filename of file containing passwords.

       const char * username
                   username string.

       char ** key newly allocated output character array.


       Retrieve  password  for  user from specified file.  The buffer key contain the password if
       this function is successful.  The caller is responsible for deallocating it.

       The file should be on the UoW "MD5 Based Authentication" format, which means it is in text
       format  with  comments  denoted  by  #  first  on  the  line, with user entries looking as
       "usernameTABpassword".  This function removes CR  and  LF  at  the  end  of  lines  before
       processing.  TAB, CR, and LF denote ASCII values 9, 13, and 10, respectively.


       Return  GSASL_OK if output buffer contains the password, GSASL_AUTHENTICATION_ERROR if the
       user could not be found, or other error code.
