sasl_errstring — Translate a SASL return code to a human-readable form


#include <sasl/sasl.h>

const char * sasl_errstring(int saslerr, 
			        const char * langlist, 
			        const char ** outlang);


sasl_usererr is called to convert a SASL return code (an integer) into a human readable string. At this time the only language available is american english written by programmers (aka gobbledygook). Note that a server should call sasl_usererr on a return code first if the string is going to be sent to the client.

saslerr specifies the error number to convert.

langlist is currently unused; Use NULL.

outlang specifies the desired RFC 1766 language for output.  NULL defaults to "en-us," currently the only supported language.

It should be noted that this function is not the recommended means of extracting error code information from SASL, instead application should use sasl_errdetail(3), which contains this information (and more)

Return Value

Returns the string.  If langlist is NULL, US-ASCII is used.

Conforming to

RFC 4422
