globus_gass_transfer_activation (3) - Linux Man Pages
The Globus GASS Transfer library uses the standard module activation and deactivation API to initialize its state. Before any GASS functions are called, the module must be activated
* globus_module_activate(GLOBUS_GASS_TRANSFER_MODULE); *
This function returns GLOBUS_SUCCESS if the GASS library was successfully initialized. This may be called multiple times.
To deactivate the GASS transfer library, the following must be called
* globus_module_deactivate(GLOBUS_GASS_TRANSFER_MODULE); *
