2.2 Initialization

GSS does not need to be initialized before it can be used.

In order to take advantage of the internationalisation features in GSS, e.g. translated error messages, the application must set the current locale using setlocale() before calling, e.g., gss_display_status(). This is typically done in main() as in the following example.

#include <gss.h>
#include <locale.h>
  setlocale (LC_ALL, "");
