       gss_display_name - API function


       #include <gss.h>

       OM_uint32   gss_display_name(OM_uint32   *   minor_status,  const  gss_name_t  input_name,
       gss_buffer_t output_name_buffer, gss_OID * output_name_type);


       OM_uint32 * minor_status
                   (Integer, modify) Mechanism specific status code.

       const gss_name_t input_name
                   (gss_name_t, read) Name to be displayed.

       gss_buffer_t output_name_buffer
                   (buffer, character-string, modify) Buffer to
                     receive textual name string.  The application must free storage
                     associated with this name after use with a call to

       gss_OID * output_name_type
                   (Object ID, modify, optional) The type of the
                     returned name.  The returned gss_OID will be a pointer into
                     static storage, and should be treated as read-only by the caller
                     (in particular, the application should not attempt to free
                     it). Specify NULL if not required.


       Allows an application to obtain a textual representation of an opaque  internal-form  name
       for  display  purposes.   The  syntax  of  a  printable  name  is  defined  by the GSS-API

       If input_name denotes an anonymous principal, the implementation should return the gss_OID
       value GSS_C_NT_ANONYMOUS as the output_name_type, and a textual name that is syntactically
       distinct from all valid supported printable names in output_name_buffer.

       If input_name was created by a call to gss_import_name,  specifying  GSS_C_NO_OID  as  the
       name-type,  implementations  that  employ  lazy  conversion  between name types may return
       GSS_C_NO_OID via the output_name_type parameter.


       `GSS_S_COMPLETE`: Successful completion.

       `GSS_S_BAD_NAME`: input_name was ill-formed.
