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



SYNOPSIS
       #include <sasl/sasl.h>


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


DESCRIPTION
       sasl_usererr  is called to convert a SASL return code (an integer) into
       a human readable string. At this time(1,2,n) 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(3,n) the  string(3,n)
       is going to be sent to the client.

       saslerr specifies the error(8,n) 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(8,n) 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 2222
