NAME

       sasl_getopt_t - The SASL get option callback

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sasl/sasl.h>

       int sasl_getopt_t(void *context,
                      const char *plugin_name,
                      const char *option,
                      const char ** result,
                      unsigned * len);

DESCRIPTION

       sasl_getopt_t  is  used  to  retrieve  an  option,  often  mechanism  specific,  from  the
       application. An example of  this  is  requested  what  KERBEROS_V4  srvtab  file  to  use.
       plugin_name  is the plugin this value if for.  option is a string representing the option.
       A common option that  all  server  applications  should  handle  is  method  for  checking
       plaintext passwords. See the administrators guide for a full description of this option.

       Memory  management  of  options  supplied  by  the  getopt  callback should be done by the
       application, however, any requested option must remain available until the callback is  no
       longer  valid.  That is, when sasl_dispose is called for a the connection it is associated
       with, or sasl_done is called for global callbacks.

RETURN VALUE

       SASL callback functions should return SASL return codes. See sasl.h for a  complete  list.
       SASL_OK indicates success.
