GSS_COMPARE_NAME(3)	      Programmer's Manual	   GSS_COMPARE_NAME(3)

NAME
     gss_compare_name -- Compare two internal-form names

SYNOPSIS
     #include <gssapi/gssapi.h>

     OM_uint32
     gss_compare_name(OM_uint32	*minor_status, const gss_name_t	name1,
	 const gss_name_t name2, int *name_equal);

DESCRIPTION
     Allows an application to compare two internal-form	names to determine
     whether they refer	to the same entity.

     If	either name presented to gss_compare_name() denotes an anonymous prin-
     cipal, the	routines should	indicate that the two names do not refer to
     the same identity.

PARAMETERS
     minor_status  Mechanism specific status code.

     name1	   Internal-form name.

     name2	   Internal-form name.

     name_equal

		   non-zero  Names refer to same entity

		   zero	     Names refer to different entities (strictly, the
			     names are not known to refer to the same iden-
			     tity).

RETURN VALUES
     GSS_S_COMPLETE	 Successful completion

     GSS_S_BAD_NAMETYPE	 The two names were of incomparable types.

     GSS_S_BAD_NAME	 One or	both of	name1 or name2 was ill-formed.
