NAME gnutls_init - API function

SYNOPSIS #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_init(gnutls_session_t * session, gnutls_connection_end_t con_end);

ARGUMENTS gnutls_session_t * session is a pointer to a gnutls_session_t structure.

gnutls_connection_end_t con_end indicate if this session is to be used for server or client.

DESCRIPTION This function initializes the current session to null. Every session must be initialized before use, so internal structures can be allo- cated. This function allocates structures which can only be freed by calling gnutls_deinit(). Returns zero on success.

con_end can be one of GNUTLS_CLIENT and GNUTLS_SERVER.

RETURNS GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, or an error code.
