after some fiddling, I have new insights and the central question is way more easy.

typedef struct {
unsigned char pdu_type;
int error_status;
int error_index;
varBind * varbind;

typedef struct _varBind{
struct _varBind * next;
char *oid; /* NULL terminated */
unsigned char asn_type;
int val_len;
union {
int * int_val;
char * str_val;
} val;

typedef struct _varBind varBind;

When I run the program with different OIDs, pdu->varbind->val_len apparently has the correct size for the returned data. The remaining question is: How to correctly access the data in that union?


Qp0zLprintf("Result has %d bytes and is: %s\n", pdu->varbind->val_len, pdu->varbind->val.str_val);

This is the only variant of dots and -> which does compile without error.


(I deliberately leave out the conversion from EBCDIC to ASCII for the sake of simplifying my question.)

:wq! PoC
