gnutls_priority_init - API function


#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_priority_init(gnutls_priority_t * priority_cache, const char * priorities, const char ** err_pos);


gnutls_priority_t * priority_cache
is a gnutls_prioritity_t type.
const char * priorities
is a string describing priorities (may be NULL)
const char ** err_pos
In case of an error this will have the position in the string the error occurred


For applications that do not modify their crypto settings per release, consider using gnutls_priority_init2() with GNUTLS_PRIORITY_INIT_DEF_APPEND flag instead. We suggest to use centralized crypto settings handled by the GnuTLS library, and applications modifying the default settings to their needs.

This function is identical to gnutls_priority_init2() with zero flags.

A NULL priorities string indicates the default priorities to be used (this is available since GnuTLS 3.3.0).


On syntax error GNUTLS_E_INVALID_REQUEST is returned, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, or an error code.
