NAME

gss_release_oid - release an object identifier  

SYNOPSIS

cc -flag ...  file ...-lgss [library ...] 
#include <gssapi/gssapi.h>

gss_release_oid(OM_uint32 *minor_status, const gss_OID *oid);  

DESCRIPTION

The gss_release_oid() function deletes an OID. Such an OID might have been created with gss_str_to_oid().

Since creating and deleting individual OIDs is discouraged, it is preferable to use gss_release_oid_set() if it is necessary to deallocate a set of OIDs.  

PARAMETERS

The parameter descriptions for gss_release_oid() are as follows:

minor_status A mechanism-specific status code.

oid The object identifier of the mechanism to be deleted.

 

ERRORS

gss_release_oid() returns one of the following status codes:

GSS_S_COMPLETE Successful completion.

GSS_S_FAILURE The underlying mechanism detected an error for which no specific GSS status code is defined. The mechanism-specific status code reported by means of the minor_status parameter details the error condition.
