gnutls_pem_base64_decode(3) API function


#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_pem_base64_decode(const char * header, const gnutls_datum_t * b64_data, unsigned char * result, size_t * result_size);


const char * header
A null terminated string with the PEM header (eg. CERTIFICATE)
const gnutls_datum_t * b64_data
contain the encoded data
unsigned char * result
the place where decoded data will be copied
size_t * result_size
holds the size of the result


This function will decode the given encoded data. 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.


On success GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER is returned if the buffer given is not long enough, or 0 on success.
