NAME         top

       gnutls_pem_base64_decode2 - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_pem_base64_decode2(const char * header, const
       gnutls_datum_t * b64_data, gnutls_datum_t * result);

ARGUMENTS         top

       const char * header
                   The PEM header (eg. CERTIFICATE)

       const gnutls_datum_t * b64_data
                   contains the encoded data

       gnutls_datum_t * result
                   the location of decoded data

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will decode the given encoded data. The decoded
       data will be allocated, and stored into result.  If the header
       given is non null this function will search for "-----BEGIN
       header" and decode only this part. Otherwise it will decode the
       first PEM packet found.

       You should use gnutls_free() to free the returned data.

       Note, that prior to GnuTLS 3.4.0 this function was available
       under the name gnutls_pem_base64_decode_alloc(). There is
       compatibility macro pointing to this function.

RETURNS         top

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