KRB5_RD_ERROR(3)	 BSD Library Functions Manual	      KRB5_RD_ERROR(3)

NAME
     krb5_rd_error, krb5_free_error, krb5_free_error_contents,
     krb5_error_from_rd_error -- parse,	free and read error from KRB-ERROR
     message

LIBRARY
     Kerberos 5	Library	(libkrb5, -lkrb5)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <krb5.h>

     krb5_error_code
     krb5_rd_error(krb5_context	context, const krb5_data *msg,
	 KRB_ERROR *result);

     void
     krb5_free_error(krb5_context context, krb5_error *error);

     void
     krb5_free_error_contents(krb5_context context, krb5_error *error);

     krb5_error_code
     krb5_error_from_rd_error(krb5_context context, const krb5_error *error,
	 const krb5_creds *creds);

DESCRIPTION
     Usually applications never	needs to parse and understand Kerberos error
     messages since higher level functions will	parse and push up the error in
     the krb5_context.	These functions	are described for completeness.

     krb5_rd_error() parses and	returns	the kerboeros error message, the
     structure should be freed with krb5_free_error_contents() when the	caller
     is	done with the structure.

     krb5_free_error() frees the content and the memory	region holding the
     structure iself.

     krb5_free_error_contents()	free the content of the	KRB-ERROR message.

     krb5_error_from_rd_error()	will parse the error message and set the error
     buffer in krb5_context to the error string	passed back or the matching
     error code	in the KRB-ERROR message.  Caller should pick up the message
     with krb5_get_error_string(3) (don't forget to free the returned string
     with krb5_free_error_string()).
