The gss_oid_to_str() function converts a GSS-API OID structure to a string. You can use the function to convert the name of a mechanism from an OID to a simple string. This function is a convenience function, as is its complementary function, gss_str_to_oid(3GSS).
If an OID must be created, use gss_create_empty_oid_set(3GSS) and gss_add_oid_set_member(3GSS) to create it. OIDs created in this way must be released with gss_release_oid_set(3GSS). However, it is strongly suggested that applications use the default GSS-API mechanism instead of creating an OID for a specific mechanism.
The gss_oid_to_str() function returns one of the following status codes:
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:
gss_add_oid_set_member(3GSS), gss_create_empty_oid_set(3GSS), gss_release_oid_set(3GSS), gss_str_to_oid(3GSS), attributes(5)
This function is included for compatibility only with programs using earlier versions of the GSS-API and should not be used for new programs. Other implementations of the GSS-API might not support this function, so portable programs should not rely on it. Sun might not continue to support this function.
