NAME         top

       gnutls_pem_base64_encode2 - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_pem_base64_encode2(const char * header, const
       gnutls_datum_t * data, gnutls_datum_t * result);

ARGUMENTS         top

       const char * header
                   is a message to be put in the encoded header (may be

       const gnutls_datum_t * data
                   contains the raw data

       gnutls_datum_t * result
                   will hold the newly allocated encoded data

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will convert the given data to printable data,
       using the base64 encoding.  This is the encoding used in PEM
       messages.  This function will allocate the required memory to
       hold the encoded data.

       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_encode_alloc(). There is
       compatibility macro pointing to this function.

RETURNS         top
