sasl_client_init - SASL client authentication initialization


#include <sasl/sasl.h>

int sasl_client_init(const  sasl_callback_t *callbacks )

It must be called before any calls to sasl_client_start(3). 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.

Return Value

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

The following return codes indicate errors and should either be handled or the authentication session should be quit:
