gnutls_record_send(3) gnutls gnutls_record_send(3)

NAME gnutls_record_send - API function

SYNOPSIS #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

ssize_t gnutls_record_send(gnutls_session_t session, const void * data, size_t sizeofdata);

ARGUMENTS gnutls_session_t session is a gnutls_session_t structure.

const void * data contains the data to send

size_t sizeofdata is the length of the data

DESCRIPTION This function has the similar semantics with send(). The only differ- ence is that it accepts a GnuTLS session, and uses different error codes.

Note that if the send buffer is full, send() will block this function. See the send() documentation for full information. You can replace the default push function by using gnutls_transport_set_ptr2() with a call to send() with a MSG_DONTWAIT flag if blocking is a problem.

If the EINTR is returned by the internal push function (the default is send()} then GNUTLS_E_INTERRUPTED will be returned. If GNUTLS_E_INTER- RUPTED or GNUTLS_E_AGAIN is returned, you must call this function again, with the same parameters; alternatively you could provide a NULL pointer for data, and 0 for size. cf. gnutls_record_get_direction().

RETURNS the number of bytes sent, or a negative error code. The number of bytes sent might be less than sizeofdata. The maximum number of bytes this function can send in a single call depends on the negotiated maxi- mum record size.
