SYNOPSIS


.In 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 otherwise.

Routines

See rpc(3) for the definition of the
.Vt 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.
