.SH DESCRIPTION
.BR recursive_key_scan ()
performs a depth-first recursive scan of the specified
.I keyring
tree and applies
.I func
to every link found in the accessible keyrings in that tree.
.I data
is passed to each invocation of func.
.P
The return values of
.I func
are summed and returned as the overall return value. Errors are ignored.
Inaccessible keyrings are not scanned, but links to them are still passed to
func.
.P
.BR recursive_session_key_scan ()
works exactly like
.BR recursive_key_scan ()
with the caller's session keyring specified as the starting keyring.
.P
The callback function is called for each link found in all the keyrings in the
nominated tree and so may be called multiple times for a particular key if that
key has multiple links to it.
.P
The callback function is passed the following parameters:
.TP
.B parent
The keyring containing the link or 0 for the initial key.
.TP
.BR key
The key to which the link points.
.TP
.BR desc " and " desc_len
A pointer to the raw description and its length as retrieved with
.BR keyctl_describe_alloc ().
These will be NULL and \-1 respectively if the description couldn't be
retrieved and
.I errno
will retain the error from
.BR keyctl_describe_alloc ().
.TP
.B data
The data passed to the scanner function.
.\"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
.SH RETURN VALUE
These functions return the sum of the results of the callback functions they
invoke.
.\"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
.SH ERRORS
Ignored.
.\"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
.SH LINKING
When linking,
.B -lkeyutils
should be specified to the linker.
