NAME

       sasl_listmech - Retrieve a list of the supported SASL mechanisms

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sasl/sasl.h>

       int sasl_listmech(sasl_conn_t *conn,
                        const char *user,
                        const char *prefix,
                        const char *sep,
                        const char *suffix,
                        const char **result,
                        unsigned *plen,
                        int *pcount);

DESCRIPTION

       sasl_listmech() returns a string listing the SASL names of all the mechanisms available to
       the specified user. This is typically given to the client through a capability command  or
       initial  server  response.  Client  applications  need  this  list  so that they know what
       mechanisms the server supports.

       conn the SASL context for this connection user (optional) restricts the mechanism list  to
       only  those  available  to  the user.  prefix appended to beginning of result sep appended
       between mechanisms suffix appended to end of result result NULL terminated  result  string
       (allocated/freed  by  library)  plen  length  of  result filled in by library. May be NULL
       pcount Number of mechanisms available (filled in by library). May be NULL

       Example:

       sasl_listmech(conn,NULL,"(",",",")",&mechlist,NULL,NULL);

       may give the string
       (ANONYMOUS,KERBEROS_V4,DIGEST-MD5)
       as a result

RETURN VALUE

       Returns SASL_OK on success. SASL error code on failure.
