SSL_state_string, SSL_state_string_long - get textual description of state of an SSL object
const char *SSL_state_string(const SSL *ssl);
const char *SSL_state_string_long(const SSL *ssl);
returns a 6 letter string indicating the current state
of the SSL
SSL_state_string_long() returns a string indicating the current state of
the SSL object ssl.
During its use, an SSL
objects passes several states. The state is internally
maintained. Querying the state information is not very informative before
or when a connection has been established. It however can be of significant
interest during the handshake.
When using non-blocking sockets, the function call performing the handshake
may return with SSL_ERROR_WANT_READ or SSL_ERROR_WANT_WRITE condition,
so that SSL_state_string[_long]() may be called.
For both blocking or non-blocking sockets, the details state information
can be used within the info_callback function set with the
Detailed description of possible states to be included later.
