Translates between fixed-size opaque data and its external representation.
C Library (libc.a)
xdr_opaque (xdrs, cp, cnt) XDR *xdrs; char *cp; u_int cnt;
The xdr_opaque subroutine is a filter primitive that translates between fixed-size opaque data and its external representation.
|xdrs||Points to the eXternal Data Representation (XDR) stream handle.|
|cp||Specifies the address of the opaque object.|
|cnt||Specifies the size, in bytes, of the object. By definition, the actual data contained in the opaque object is not machine-portable.|
Upon successful completion, this subroutine returns a value of 1. If unsuccessful, it returns a value of 0.
This subroutine is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
