Subject: API Question

Is there a particular order in which to use the Kerberos API.  I suppose 
more specifically what function calls do I need to make from start to 
finish on authenticating a user from a console application:

1. krb5_init_context()
2. krb5_auth_con_init()
3 ...???

Or is the question too vague?  What I am trying to do is write a simple 
application to retrieve a ticket for a given username /password then map 
the retrieved ticket to a local account... I am having a hard time 
finding any real good documentation about this subject on the web as 
well from the provided RFC documents.

Any help or pointers is appreciated.
