BIO operations. It can be used for debugging purposes to trace operations on a
BIO or to modify its operation.

can be used to set and retrieve an argument for use in the callback.
is a standard debugging callback which prints out
information relating to each BIO operation. If the callback argument is set if
is interpreted as a BIO to send the information to, otherwise stderr is used.

The BIO the callback is attached to is passed in b

callback is called twice, once before and once after the actual operation, the
latter case has oper

is the return value that would be returned to the application if
no callback were present. The actual value returned is the return value of the
callback itself. In the case of callbacks called before the actual BIO
operation 1 is placed in retvalue, if the return value is not positive it will
be immediately returned to the application and the BIO operation will not be
The callback should normally simply return retvalue

processing, unless if specifically wishes to modify the value returned to the
- callback(b, BIO_CB_FREE, NULL, 0L, 0L, 1L) is called before
the free operation.
- BIO_read(b, out, outl)
- callback(b, BIO_CB_READ, out, outl, 0L, 1L) is called
before the read and callback(b, BIO_CB_READ|BIO_CB_RETURN, out, outl, 0L,
- BIO_write(b, in, inl)
- callback(b, BIO_CB_WRITE, in, inl, 0L, 1L) is called before
the write and callback(b, BIO_CB_WRITE|BIO_CB_RETURN, in, inl, 0L,
- BIO_gets(b, out, outl)
- callback(b, BIO_CB_GETS, out, outl, 0L, 1L) is called
before the operation and callback(b, BIO_CB_GETS|BIO_CB_RETURN, out, outl,
0L, retvalue) after.
- BIO_puts(b, in)
- callback(b, BIO_CB_WRITE, in, 0, 0L, 1L) is called before
the operation and callback(b, BIO_CB_WRITE|BIO_CB_RETURN, in, 0, 0L,
