gnutls_alert_send_appropriate - API function
int gnutls_alert_send_appropriate(gnutls_session_t session, int err);
- gnutls_session_t session
is a gnutls_session_t type.
- int err
is an error code returned by another GnuTLS function
Sends an alert to the peer depending on the error code returned by
a gnutls function. This function will call gnutls_error_to_alert()
to determine the appropriate alert to send.
This function may also return GNUTLS_E_AGAIN, or
This function historically was always sending an alert to the
peer, even if err was inappropriate to respond with an alert
(e.g., GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS). Since 3.6.6 this function returns
success without transmitting any data on error codes that
should not result to an alert.
On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS
(0) is returned, otherwise
an error code is returned.
