NAME
kva_match - look up a key in a key-value array SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file...- lsecdb [ library... ] #include <secdb.h> char *kva_match(kva_t *kva, char *key); DESCRIPTION
The kva_match() function searches a kva_t structure, which is part of the authattr_t, execattr_t, profattr_t, or userattr_t structures. The function takes two arguments: a pointer to a key value array, and a key. If the key is in the array, the function returns a pointer to the first corresponding value that matches that key. Otherwise, the function returns NULL. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, the function returns a pointer to the value sought. Otherwise, it returns NULL. ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |MT-Level |MT-Safe | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ SEE ALSO
getauthattr(3SECDB), getexecattr(3SECDB), getprofattr(3SECDB), getuserattr(3SECDB) NOTES
The kva_match() function returns a pointer to data that already exists in the key-value array. It does not allocate its own memory for this pointer but obtains it from the key-value array that is passed as its first argument. SunOS 5.10 12 Aug 1999 kva_match(3SECDB)
