NAME

gnutls_alert_send_appropriate - API function  

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_alert_send_appropriate(gnutls_session_t session, int err);  

ARGUMENTS

gnutls_session_t session
is a gnutls_session_t type.
int err
is an error code returned by another GnuTLS function
 

DESCRIPTION

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 GNUTLS_E_INTERRUPTED.

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.  

RETURNS

On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise an error code is returned.
