DESCRIPTION
       The functions dealing with variable bindings fall into four groups - dealing with the creation, setting of val-
       ues, output and deletion of varbinds.

   Creation
       snmp_pdu_add_variable will create a new varbind structure, initialised with the name ( objid, objidlen ),  syn-
       tax ( type ) and value ( value ,  len ) provided.  This varbind is then added to the end of the varbind list in
       the given PDU.

       snmp_varlist_add_variable is similar, but appends the new varbind to the end  of  the  varbind  list  provided.
       When adding the first varbind to an empty list, simply pass the address of the head of the list:

              "[Insert example code here]"

       In  both cases, the routine will return a pointer to the new varbind structure (or NULL if the varbind creation
       fails).

       snmp_add_null_var is a convenience function to add an empty varbind to the PDU.  without needing to specify the
       NULL  value explicitly.  This is the normal mechanism for constructing a GET (or similar) information retrieval
       request.
       Again, this returns a pointer to the new varbind, or NULL.

       snmp_clone_varbind creates a copy of each varbind in the specified list, returning a pointer to the head of the
       new list (or NULL if the cloning fails).

   Setting of values
       snmp_set_var_objid sets the name of the varbind structure to the specified OID.
       snmp_set_var_typed_value sets the syntax type and value of the varbind structure.
       snmp_set_var_value sets the value of the varbind structure, leaving the syntax type unchanged.
       snmp_set_var_typed_integer  is  a  convenience  function to set the syntax type and value for a 32-bit integer-
       based varbind.

       All four of these return 0 if the assignment is successful, or 1 if it is not.

   Output
       print_variable will take an object identifier (as returned by read_objid,  snmp_parse_oid  or  get_module_node)
       and an instance of such a variable, and prints to the standard output the textual form of the object identifier
       together with the value of the variable.

       fprint_variable does the same, but prints to the FILE pointer specified by the initial parameter.

       snprint_variable prints the same information into the buffer pointed to by buf which  is  of  length  len.   It
       returns  the  number  of characters printed, or -1 if the buffer was not large enough.  In the latter case, buf
       will typically contained a truncated version of the information (but this behaviour is not  guaranteed).   This
       function replaces the obsolete function sprint_variable.

       print_value,  fprint_value,  and  snprint_value do the same as the equivalent print_variable routines, but only
       displaying the value of the variable, without the corresponding object identifier.

   Deletion
       snmp_free_var releases all memory used by the given varbind structure.
       snmp_free_varbind releases all memory used by each varbind structure in the varbind list provided.
