X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_object(3SSL)	     OpenSSL		 X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_object(3SSL)

NAME
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_object, X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_data, X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_object,
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_data, X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_txt, X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_NID,
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_OBJ - X509_NAME_ENTRY utility functions

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/x509.h>

	ASN1_OBJECT * X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_object(X509_NAME_ENTRY *ne);
	ASN1_STRING * X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_data(X509_NAME_ENTRY *ne);

	int X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_object(X509_NAME_ENTRY *ne, ASN1_OBJECT *obj);
	int X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_data(X509_NAME_ENTRY *ne, int type, const unsigned char *bytes, int len);

	X509_NAME_ENTRY *X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_txt(X509_NAME_ENTRY **ne, const char *field, int type, const unsigned char *bytes, int len);
	X509_NAME_ENTRY *X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_NID(X509_NAME_ENTRY **ne, int nid, int type,unsigned char *bytes, int len);
	X509_NAME_ENTRY *X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_OBJ(X509_NAME_ENTRY **ne, ASN1_OBJECT *obj, int type, const unsigned char *bytes, int len);

DESCRIPTION
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_object() retrieves the field name of ne in and ASN1_OBJECT structure.

       X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_data() retrieves the field value of ne in and ASN1_STRING structure.

       X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_object() sets the field name of ne to obj.

       X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_data() sets the field value of ne to string type type and value
       determined by bytes and len.

       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_txt(), X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_NID() and
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_OBJ() create and return an X509_NAME_ENTRY structure.

NOTES
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_object() and X509_NAME_ENTRY_get_data() can be used to examine an
       X509_NAME_ENTRY function as returned by X509_NAME_get_entry() for example.

       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_txt(), X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_NID(), and
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_OBJ() create and return an

       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_txt(), X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_OBJ(),
       X509_NAME_ENTRY_create_by_NID() and X509_NAME_ENTRY_set_data() are seldom used in practice
       because X509_NAME_ENTRY structures are almost always part of X509_NAME structures and the
       corresponding X509_NAME functions are typically used to create and add new entries in a
       single operation.

       The arguments of these functions support similar options to the similarly named ones of
       the corresponding X509_NAME functions such as X509_NAME_add_entry_by_txt(). So for example
       type can be set to MBSTRING_ASC but in the case of X509_set_data() the field name must be
       set first so the relevant field information can be looked up internally.
