NAME
       GSSAPI::Status - methods for handlings GSSAPI statuses

SYNOPSIS
	 use GSSAPI;

	 $status = GSSAPI::Status->new(GSS_S_COMPLETE, 0);

	 if (GSS_ERROR($status->major)) {
	   die "a horrible death";
	 }
	 if (! $status) {		       # another way of writing the above
	   die "a horrible death";
	 }

	 $status = $some_GSSAPI->someop($args1, etc);
	 if ($status) {
	   foreach ($status->generic_message, $status->specific_message) {
	     print "GSSAPI error: $_\n";
	   }
	   die "help me";
	 }

DESCRIPTION
       "GSSAPI::Status" objects are returned by most other GSSAPI operations.  Such statuses
       consist of a GSSAPI generic code and, for most operations, a mechanism specific code.
       These numeric codes can be accessed via the methods "major" and "minor".  The standard
       textual messages that go with the current status can be obtained via the "generic_message"
       and "specific_message" methods.	Each of these returns a list of text which should
       presumably be displayed in order.

       The generic code part of a GSSAPI::Status is composed of three subfields that can be
       accessed with the "GSS_CALLING_ERROR", "GSS_ROUTINE_ERROR", and "GSS_SUPPLEMENTARY_INFO"
       functions.  The returned values can be compared against the constants whose names start
       with "GSS_S_" if your code wants to handle particular errors itself.  The "GSS_ERROR"
       function returns true if and only if the given generic code contains neither a calling
       error nor a routine error.

       When evaluated in a boolean context, a "GSSAPI::Status" object will be true if and only if
       the major status code is "GSS_S_COMPLETE".

       When evaluated in a string contect, a "GSSAPI::Status" object will return the generic and
       specific messages all joined together with newlines.  This may or may not make "die
       $status" work usefully.

BUGS
       The base objects are currently implmented as a blessed C structure containing the major
       and minor status codes.	It should probably be a blessed array or hash instead, thereby
       cutting down on the amount of C code involved and making it more flexible.
