// This function is used to en/decode Str and Url type variables. It is
// defined as extern C since it is passed via function pointers to routines
// in the xdr library where it is executed. This function is defined so
// that Str and Url have an en/decoder which takes exactly two arguments: an
// XDR * and a string reference.
// NB: this function is *not* used for arrays (i.e., it is not the function
// referenced by BaseType's _xdr_coder field when the object is a Str or Url.
// Also note that \e max_str_len is an obese number but that really does not
// matter; xdr_string() would never actually allocate that much memory unless
// a string that size was sent from the server.
// Returns: XDR's bool_t; TRUE if no errors are detected, FALSE
// otherwise. The formal parameter BUF is modified as a side effect.

/** The <tt>xdr_coder</tt> function (also "filter primitive") is used to
    encode and decode each element in a multiple element data
    structure.  These functions are used to convert data to and from
    its local representation to the XDR representation, which is
    used to transmit and receive the data.  See <tt>man xdr</tt> for more
    information about the available XDR filter primitives.

    \note This class data is only used for multiple element data
    types.  The simple data types (Int, Float, and so on), are
    translated directly.

    \note Even though Byte is a cardinal type, xdr_char is <i>not</i>
    used to transport Byte arrays over the network. Instead, Byte is
    a special case handled in Array.

    @brief Returns a function used to encode elements of an array.
    @return A C function used to encode data in the XDR format.
