NCONF_load

NAME

NCONF_new_ex, NCONF_new, NCONF_free, NCONF_default, NCONF_load - functionality to Load and parse configuration files manually

SYNOPSIS

 #include <openssl/conf.h>

 CONF *NCONF_new_ex(OSSL_LIB_CTX *libctx, CONF_METHOD *meth);
 CONF *NCONF_new(CONF_METHOD *meth);
 void NCONF_free(CONF *conf);
 CONF_METHOD *NCONF_default(void);
 int NCONF_load(CONF *conf, const char *file, long *eline);

DESCRIPTION

NCONF_new_ex() creates a new CONF object in heap memory and assigns to it a context libctx that can be used during loading. If the method table meth is set to NULL then the default value of NCONF_default() is used.

NCONF_new() is similar to NCONF_new_ex() but sets the libctx to NULL.

NCONF_free() frees the data associated with conf and then frees the conf object.

NCONF_load() parses the file named filename and adds the values found to conf. If an error occurs file and eline list the file and line that the load failed on if they are not NULL.

NCONF_default() gets the default method table for processing a configuration file.

RETURN VALUES

NCONF_load() returns 1 on success or 0 on error.

NCONF_new_ex() and NCONF_new() return a newly created CONF object or NULL if an error occurs.
