gss_compare_name - API function

#include <gss.h>

OM_uint32 gss_compare_name(OM_uint32 * minor_status, const gss_name_t name1, const gss_name_t name2, int * name_equal);

(Integer, modify) Mechanism specific status code.
(gss_name_t, read) Internal-form name.
(gss_name_t, read) Internal-form name.
(boolean, modify) Non-zero - names refer to same
entity. Zero - names refer to different entities (strictly, the
names are not known to refer to the same identity).

Allows an application to compare two internal-form names to determine whether they refer to the same entity.

If either name presented to gss_compare_name denotes an anonymous principal, the routines should indicate that the two names do not refer to the same identity.

`GSS_S_COMPLETE`: Successful completion.

`GSS_S_BAD_NAMETYPE`: The two names were of incomparable types.

`GSS_S_BAD_NAME`: One or both of name1 or name2 was ill-formed.
