SYNOPSIS #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_error_is_fatal(int error);

ARGUMENTS int error is a GnuTLS error code, a negative value

DESCRIPTION If a GnuTLS function returns a negative value you may feed that value to this function to see if the error condition is fatal.

Note that you may want to check the error code manually, since some non-fatal errors to the protocol may be fatal for you program.

This function is only useful if you are dealing with errors from the record layer or the handshake layer.

RETURNS 1 if the error code is fatal, for positive error values, 0 is returned. For unknown error values, -1 is returned.
