DESCRIPTION


The gss_release_oid_set() function frees storage associated with a GSS-
API-generated gss_OID_set object. The set parameter must refer to an
OID-set that was returned from a GSS-API function. The
gss_release_oid_set() function will free the storage associated with each
individual member OID, the OID set's elements array, and
gss_OID_set_desc.


gss_OID_set is set to GSS_C_NO_OID_SET on successful completion of this
function.

ERRORS


The gss_release_oid_set() function may return the following status codes:

GSS_S_COMPLETE
Successful completion


GSS_S_FAILURE
The underlying mechanism detected an error for which no
specific GSS status code is defined. The mechanism-
specific status code reported by means of the
minor_status parameter details the error condition.
