       sasl_client_step - Perform a step in the authentication negotiation


       #include <sasl/sasl.h>

       int sasl_client_step(sasl_conn_t *conn,
                      const char *serverin,
                      unsigned serverinlen,
                      sasl_interact_t ** prompt_need,

       sasl_client_step()  performs  a step in the authentication negotiation. It returns SASL_OK
       if the whole negotiation is successful and SASL_CONTINUE if this step is ok but  at  least
       one  more  step  is  needed.  A  client should not assume an authentication negotiation is
       successful just because the server signaled success via protocol (i.e. if the server  said
       ".  OK  Authentication succeeded" in IMAP sasl_client_step should still be called one more
       time with a serverinlen of zero.

       If SASL_INTERACT is returned the library needs some values to be filled in before  it  can
       proceed. The prompt_need structure will be filled in with requests. The application should
       fulfill these requests and call sasl_client_start again  with  identical  parameters  (the
       prompt_need  parameter  will  be  the  same  pointer  as  before  but  filled  in  by  the

       sasl_client_step returns an integer which corresponds  to  one  of  the  following  codes.
       SASL_CONTINUE   indicates   success   and   that  there  are  more  steps  needed  in  the
       authentication. SASL_OK indicates that the authentication is complete.  All  other  return
