NAME

krb5_appdefault_boolean, krb5_appdefault_string, krb5_appdefault_time – get application configuration value

CONTENTS

LIBRARY

Kerberos 5 Library (libkrb5, -lkrb5)

SYNOPSIS

#include <krb5.h>

void
krb5_appdefault_boolean(krb5_context context, const char *appname, krb5_realm realm, const char *option, krb5_boolean def_val, krb5_boolean *ret_val);

void
krb5_appdefault_string(krb5_context context, const char *appname, krb5_realm realm, const char *option, const char *def_val, char **ret_val);

void
krb5_appdefault_time(krb5_context context, const char *appname, krb5_realm realm, const char *option, time_t def_val, time_t *ret_val);

DESCRIPTION

These functions get application defaults from the appdefaults section of the krb5.conf(5) configuration file. These defaults can be specified per application, and/or per realm.

These values will be looked for in krb5.conf(5), in order of descending importance.

[appdefaults]
        appname = {
                realm = {
                        option = value
                }
        }
        appname = {
                option = value
        }
        realm = {
                option = value
        }
        option = value
appname is the name of the application, and realm is the realm name. If the realm is omitted it will not be used for resolving values. def_val is the value to return if no value is found in krb5.conf(5).

Ken Thompson has an automobile which he helped design. Unlike most automobiles, it has neither speedometer, nor gas gauge, nor any of the other numerous idiot lights which plague the modern driver. Rather, if the driver makes a mistake, a giant “?” lights up in the center of the dashboard. “The experienced driver,” says Thompson, “will usually know what's wrong.”
