       profattr_t *getprofattr(void);

       profattr_t *getprofnam(const char *name);

       void free_profattr(profattr_t *pd);

       void setprofattr(void);

       void endprofattr(void);

       void getproflist(const char *profname, char **proflist, int *profcnt);

       void free_proflist(char **proflist, int profcnt);

       The getprofattr() and getprofnam() functions each  return  a  prof_attr
       entry.  Entries	can come from any of the sources specified in the nss‐
       witch.conf(4) file.

       The getprofattr() function enumerates prof_attr entries.	 The  getprof‐
       nam()  function	searches for a prof_attr entry with a given name. Suc‐
       cessive calls to these functions	 return	 either	 successive  prof_attr
       entries or NULL.

       The internal representation of a prof_attr entry is a profattr_t struc‐
       ture defined in	<prof_attr.h> with the following members:

	 char  *name;	/* Name of the profile */
	 char  *res1;	/* Reserved for future use */
	 char  *res2;	/* Reserved for future use */
	 char  *desc;	/* Description/Purpose of the profile */
	 kva_t *attr;	/* Profile attributes */

       The free_profattr() function releases memory allocated by  the  getpro‐
       fattr() and getprofnam() functions.

       The  setprofattr()  function "rewinds" to the beginning of the enumera‐
       tion of prof_attr entries. Calls to getprofnam() can leave the enumera‐
       tion  in	 an  indeterminate  state. Therefore,  setprofattr() should be
       called before the first call to getprofattr().

       The endprofattr() function may be called	 to  indicate  that  prof_attr
       processing  is  complete;  the system may then close any open prof_attr
       file, deallocate storage, and so forth.

       The getproflist() function searches for the list of sub-profiles	 found
       in  the	given  profname	 and  allocates	 memory	 to store this list in
       proflist. The given profname will be included in the list  of  sub-pro‐
       files.  The  profcnt  argument  indicates the number of items currently
       valid in proflist. Memory allocated by getproflist()  should  be	 freed
       using the free_proflist() function.

       The  free_proflist()  function  frees  memory  allocated	 by  the  get‐
       proflist() function.  The profcnt  argument  specifies  the  number  of
       items to free from the proflist argument.

       The getprofattr() function returns a pointer to a profattr_t if it suc‐
       cessfully enumerates an entry; otherwise it  returns  NULL,  indicating
       the end of the enumeration.

       The  getprofnam() function returns a pointer to a profattr_t if it suc‐
       cessfully locates the requested entry; otherwise it returns NULL.

       Individual attributes in the prof_attr_t structure can be  referred  to
       by calling the kva_match(3SECDB) function.

       Because	the  list of legal keys is likely to expand, any code  must be
       written to ignore unknown key-value pairs without error.

       The getprofattr() and getprofnam() functions both allocate  memory  for
       the  pointers  they  return. This memory should be deallocated with the
       free_profattr() function.
