GSS_DISPLAY_NAME(3)	      Programmer's Manual	   GSS_DISPLAY_NAME(3)

NAME
     gss_display_name -- Convert internal-form name to text

SYNOPSIS
     #include <gssapi/gssapi.h>

     OM_uint32
     gss_display_name(OM_uint32	*minor_status, const gss_name_t	input_name,
	 gss_buffer_t output_name_buffer, gss_OID *output_name_type);

DESCRIPTION
     Allows an application to obtain a textual representation of an opaque in-
     ternal-form name for display purposes.  The syntax	of a printable name is
     defined by	the GSS-API implementation.

     If	input_name denotes an anonymous	principal, the implementation should
     return the	gss_OID	value GSS_C_NT_ANONYMOUS as the	output_name_type, and
     a textual name that is syntactically distinct from	all valid supported
     printable names in	output_name_buffer.

     If	input_name was created by a call to gss_import_name(), specifying
     GSS_C_NO_OID as the name-type, implementations that employ	lazy conver-
     sion between name types may return	GSS_C_NO_OID via the output_name_type
     parameter.

PARAMETERS
     minor_status	 Mechanism specific status code.

     input_name		 Name to be displayed.

     output_name_buffer	 Buffer	to receive textual name	string.	 The applica-
			 tion must free	storage	associated with	this name af-
			 ter use with a	call to	gss_release_buffer().

     output_name_type	 The type of the returned name.	 The returned gss_OID
			 will be a pointer into	static storage,	and should be
			 treated as read-only by the caller (in	particular,
			 the application should	not attempt to free it).
			 Specify NULL if not required.

RETURN VALUES
     GSS_S_COMPLETE  Successful	completion

     GSS_S_BAD_NAME  input_name	was ill-formed
