gnutls_range_split — API function


#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>
int gnutls_range_split( gnutls_session_t session,
  const gnutls_range_st * orig,
  gnutls_range_st * next,
  gnutls_range_st * remainder);


gnutls_session_t session

is a gnutls_session_t structure

const gnutls_range_st * orig

is the original range provided by the user

gnutls_range_st * next

is the returned range that can be conveyed in a TLS record

gnutls_range_st * remainder

is the returned remaining range


This function should be used when it is required to hide the length of very long data that cannot be directly provided to gnutls_record_send_range(). In that case this function should be called with the desired length hiding range in orig . The returned next value should then be used in the next call to gnutls_record_send_range() with the partial data. That process should be repeated until remainder is (0,0).


0 in case splitting succeeds, non zero in case of error. Note that orig is not changed, while the values of next and remainder are modified to store the resulting values.
