ERR_load_crypto_strings(3)          OpenSSL         ERR_load_crypto_strings(3)



NAME
       ERR_load_crypto_strings, SSL_load_error_strings, ERR_free_strings -
       load and free error strings

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

SYNOPSIS
        #include <openssl/err.h>

        void ERR_load_crypto_strings(void);
        void ERR_free_strings(void);

        #include <openssl/ssl.h>

        void SSL_load_error_strings(void);

DESCRIPTION
       ERR_load_crypto_strings() registers the error strings for all libcrypto
       functions. SSL_load_error_strings() does the same, but also registers
       the libssl error strings.

       One of these functions should be called before generating textual error
       messages. However, this is not required when memory usage is an issue.

       ERR_free_strings() frees all previously loaded error strings.

RETURN VALUES
       ERR_load_crypto_strings(), SSL_load_error_strings() and
       ERR_free_strings() return no values.

SEE ALSO
       openssl_err(3), ERR_error_string(3)

HISTORY
       ERR_load_error_strings(), SSL_load_error_strings() and
       ERR_free_strings() are available in all versions of SSLeay and OpenSSL.
