NAME
     xdr_accepted_reply, xdr_authsys_parms, xdr_callhdr, xdr_callmsg,
     xdr_opaque_auth, xdr_rejected_reply, xdr_replymsg -- XDR library routines
     for remote	procedure calls

LIBRARY
     Standard C	Library	(libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <rpc/rpc.h>

     bool_t
     xdr_accepted_reply(XDR *xdrs, struct accepted_reply *ar);

     bool_t
     xdr_authsys_parms(XDR *xdrs, struct authsys_parms *aupp);

     bool_t
     xdr_callhdr(XDR *xdrs, struct rpc_msg *chdr);

     bool_t
     xdr_callmsg(XDR *xdrs, struct rpc_msg *cmsg);

     bool_t
     xdr_opaque_auth(XDR *xdrs,	struct opaque_auth *ap);

     bool_t
     xdr_rejected_reply(XDR *xdrs, struct rejected_reply *rr);

     bool_t
     xdr_replymsg(XDR *xdrs, struct rpc_msg *rmsg);

DESCRIPTION
     These routines are	used for describing the	RPC messages in	XDR language.
     They should normally be used by those who do not want to use the RPC
     package directly.	These routines return TRUE if they succeed, FALSE oth-
     erwise.

Routines
     See rpc(3)	for the	definition of the XDR data structure.

     xdr_accepted_reply()
	    Used to translate between RPC reply	messages and their external
	    representation.  It	includes the status of the RPC call in the XDR
	    language format.  In the case of success, it also includes the
	    call results.

     xdr_authsys_parms()
	    Used for describing	UNIX operating system credentials.  It in-
	    cludes machine-name, uid, gid list,	etc.

     xdr_callhdr()
	    Used for describing	RPC call header	messages.  It encodes the
	    static part	of the call message header in the XDR language format.
	    It includes	information such as transaction	ID, RPC	version	num-
	    ber, program and version number.

     xdr_callmsg()
	    Used for describing	RPC call messages.  This includes all the RPC
	    call information such as transaction ID, RPC version number, pro-
	    gram number, version number, authentication	information, etc.
	    This is normally used by servers to	determine information about
	    the	client RPC call.

     xdr_opaque_auth()
	    Used for describing	RPC opaque authentication information mes-
	    sages.

     xdr_rejected_reply()
	    Used for describing	RPC reply messages.  It	encodes	the rejected
	    RPC	message	in the XDR language format.  The message could be re-
	    jected either because of version number mis-match or because of
	    authentication errors.

     xdr_replymsg()
	    Used for describing	RPC reply messages.  It	translates between the
	    RPC	reply message and its external representation.	This reply
	    could be either an acceptance, rejection or	NULL.
