gnutls_global_init - API function
int gnutls_global_init( void);
Since GnuTLS 3.3.0 this function is no longer necessary to be explicitly called.
To disable the implicit call (in a library constructor) of this function set
the environment variable GNUTLS_NO_EXPLICIT_INIT
This function performs any required precalculations, detects the supported CPU
capabilities and initializes the underlying cryptographic backend. In order to
free any resources taken by this call you should gnutls_global_deinit()
when gnutls usage is no longer needed.
This function increments a global counter, so that gnutls_global_deinit()
only releases resources when it has been called as many times as
. This is useful when GnuTLS is used by more than
one library in an application. This function can be called many times, but
will only do something the first time.
A subsequent call of this function if the initial has failed will return the
same error code.
On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS
(0) is returned, otherwise a negative error
code is returned.
