NAME

       sasl_client_init - SASL client authentication initialization

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sasl/sasl.h>

       int sasl_client_init(const  sasl_callback_t *callbacks);

DESCRIPTION

       sasl_client_init()   initializes   SASL.   It   must   be   called  before  any  calls  to
       sasl_client_start. This call initializes all  SASL  client  drivers  (e.g.  authentication
       mechanisms). These are usually found in the /usr/lib/sasl2 directory but the directory may
       be overridden with the SASL_PATH environment variable.

       callbacks specifies the base callbacks for all client connections. See the  sasl_callbacks
       man page for more information

RETURN VALUE

       sasl_client_init  returns  an  integer  which  corresponds  to one of the following codes.
       SASL_OK is the only one that indicates success. All  others  indicate  errors  and  should
       either be handled or the authentication session should be quit.

ERRORS

       SASL_OK Success

       SASL_BADVERS
               Mechanism version mismatch

       SASL_BADPARAM
               Error in config file

       SASL_NOMEM
               Not enough memory to complete operation
