ERR_load_strings(3)                 OpenSSL                ERR_load_strings(3)



NAME
       ERR_load_strings, ERR_PACK, ERR_get_next_error_library - load arbitrary
       error strings

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

SYNOPSIS
        #include <openssl/err.h>

        void ERR_load_strings(int lib, ERR_STRING_DATA str[]);

        int ERR_get_next_error_library(void);

        unsigned long ERR_PACK(int lib, int func, int reason);


DESCRIPTION
       ERR_load_strings() registers error strings for library number lib.

       str is an array of error string data:

        typedef struct ERR_string_data_st
        {
               unsigned long error;
               char *string;
        } ERR_STRING_DATA;

       The error code is generated from the library number and a function and
       reason code: error = ERR_PACK(lib, func, reason).  ERR_PACK() is a
       macro.

       The last entry in the array is {0,0}.

       ERR_get_next_error_library() can be used to assign library numbers to
       user libraries at runtime.

RETURN VALUE
       ERR_load_strings() returns no value. ERR_PACK() return the error code.
       ERR_get_next_error_library() returns a new library number.

HISTORY
       ERR_load_error_strings() and ERR_PACK() are available in all versions
       of SSLeay and OpenSSL. ERR_get_next_error_library() was added in SSLeay
       0.9.0.
