NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     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    [Toc]    [Back]

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #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    [Toc]    [Back]

     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 otherwise.

Routines    [Toc]    [Back]

     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
	    includes 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 number,
 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, program
 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 messages.


     xdr_rejected_reply()
	    Used for describing RPC reply messages.  It encodes the rejected
	    RPC message in the XDR language format.  The message could be
	    rejected 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.
