What do I gain by using ossDupWorld() instead of ossinit() to create a copy of the ossGlobal structure?

If you have to repeatedly call the ossinit() function in your application, we suggest that you instead use the ossDupWorld() function. This function can produce a duplicate copy of an already initialized ossGlobal variable in about half the time it takes for a call to ossinit() to complete. It might be useful in multi-threaded environments. See the OSS ASN.1/C API Reference Manual (section 4.5.14 of the April 2011 edition) for more about ossDupWorld().
