#include <openssl/asn1.h> int ASN1_TYPE_get(const ASN1_TYPE *a); void ASN1_TYPE_set(ASN1_TYPE *a, int type, void *value); int ASN1_TYPE_set1(ASN1_TYPE *a, int type, const void *value); int ASN1_TYPE_cmp(const ASN1_TYPE *a, const ASN1_TYPE *b); void *ASN1_TYPE_unpack_sequence(const ASN1_ITEM *it, const ASN1_TYPE *t); ASN1_TYPE *ASN1_TYPE_pack_sequence(const ASN1_ITEM *it, void *s, ASN1_TYPE **t);
ASN1_TYPE_get() returns the type of a.
ASN1_TYPE_set() sets the value of a to type and value. This function uses the pointer value internally so it must not be freed up after the call.
ASN1_TYPE_set1() sets the value of a to type a copy of value.
ASN1_TYPE_cmp() compares ASN.1 types a and b and returns 0 if they are identical and non-zero otherwise.
ASN1_TYPE_unpack_sequence() attempts to parse the SEQUENCE present in t using the ASN.1 structure it. If successful it returns a pointer to the ASN.1 structure corresponding to it which must be freed by the caller. If it fails it return NULL.
ASN1_TYPE_pack_sequence() attempts to encode the ASN.1 structure s corresponding to it into an ASN1_TYPE. If successful the encoded ASN1_TYPE is returned. If t and *t are not NULL the encoded type is written to t overwriting any existing data. If t is not NULL but *t is NULL the returned ASN1_TYPE is written to *t.
ASN1_TYPE_cmp() may not return zero if two types are equivalent but have different encodings. For example the single content octet of the boolean TRUE value under BER can have any non-zero encoding but ASN1_TYPE_cmp() will only return zero if the values are the same.
If either or both of the parameters passed to ASN1_TYPE_cmp() is NULL the return value is non-zero. Technically if both parameters are NULL the two types could be absent OPTIONAL fields and so should match, however passing NULL values could also indicate a programming error (for example an unparseable type which returns NULL) for types which do not match. So applications should handle the case of two absent values separately.
ASN1_TYPE_set() does not return a value.
ASN1_TYPE_set1() returns 1 for success and 0 for failure.
ASN1_TYPE_cmp() returns 0 if the types are identical and non-zero otherwise.
ASN1_TYPE_unpack_sequence() returns a pointer to an ASN.1 structure or NULL on failure.
