SYNOPSIS         top

                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

DESCRIPTION         top

       Sets the default priority on the ciphers, key exchange methods,
       and macs. This is the recommended method of setting the defaults,
       in order to promote consistency between applications using
       GnuTLS, and to allow GnuTLS using applications to update settings
       in par with the library. For client applications which require
       maximum compatibility consider calling
       gnutls_session_enable_compatibility_mode() after this function.

       For an application to specify additional options to priority
       string consider using gnutls_set_default_priority_append().

       To allow a user to override the defaults (e.g., when a user
       interface or configuration file is available), the functions
       gnutls_priority_set_direct() or gnutls_priority_set() can be

RETURNS         top

       GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, or an error code.
