       gsasl_md5pwd_get_password - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<gsasl.h>

       int gsasl_md5pwd_get_password(const char	* filename, const char * user-
       name, char * key, size_t	* keylen);

DESCRIPTION
       Retrieve	 password for user from	specified file.	 To find out how large
       the output array	must be, call this function with out=NULL.

       The file	should be on the UoW "MD5 Based	Authentication"	format,	 which
       means  it  is  in  text	format with comments denoted by	# first	on the
       line, with user entries looking as "usernameTABpassword".   This	 func-
       tion removes CR and LF at the end of lines before processing.  TAB, CR,
       and LF denote ASCII values 9, 13, and 10, respectively.

       Return value: Return GSASL_OK if	output buffer contains	the  password,
       GSASL_AUTHENTICATION_ERROR if the user could not	be found, or other er-
       ror code.

       Use gsasl_simple_getpass() instead.
