sasl_getopt_t - The SASL get option callback
int sasl_getopt_t(void *context,
const char *plugin_name,
const char *option,
const char ** result,
unsigned * len);
sasl_getopt_t is used to retrieve an option, often mechanism specific,
from the application. An example of this is requested what KERBEROS_V4
srvtab file to use. plugin_name is the plugin this value if for.
option is a string representing the option. A common option that all
server applications should handle is method for checking plaintext
passwords. See the administrators guide for a full description of this
Memory management of options supplied by the getopt callback should be
done by the application, however, any requested option must remain
available until the callback is no longer valid. That is, when
sasl_dispose is called for a the connection it is associated with, or
sasl_done is called for global callbacks.
SASL callback functions should return SASL return codes. See sasl.h for
a complete list. SASL_OK indicates success.
