DESCRIPTION
     These routines are used for describing the RPC messages in XDR language.
     They should normally be used by those who do not want to use the RPC
     package directly.  These routines return TRUE if they succeed, FALSE oth-
     erwise.

ROUTINES
     See rpc(3) for the definition of the XDR data structure.

     xdr_accepted_reply()
            Used to translate between RPC reply messages and their external
            representation.  It includes the status of the RPC call in the XDR
            language format.  In the case of success, it also includes the
            call results.

     xdr_authsys_parms()
            Used for describing UNIX operating system credentials.  It
            includes machine-name, uid, gid list, etc.

     xdr_callhdr()
            Used for describing RPC call header messages.  It encodes the
            static part of the call message header in the XDR language format.
            It includes information such as transaction ID, RPC version num-
            ber, program and version number.

     xdr_callmsg()
            Used for describing RPC call messages.  This includes all the  RPC
            call information such as transaction ID, RPC version number, pro-
            gram number, version number, authentication information, etc.
            This is normally used by servers to determine information about
            the client RPC call.

     xdr_opaque_auth()
            Used for describing RPC opaque authentication information mes-
            sages.

     xdr_rejected_reply()
            Used for describing RPC reply messages.  It encodes the rejected
            RPC message in the XDR language format.  The message could be
            rejected either because of version number mis-match or because of
            authentication errors.

     xdr_replymsg()
            Used for describing RPC reply messages.  It translates between the
            RPC reply message and its external representation.  This reply
            could be either an acceptance, rejection or NULL.
