SSL_library_init(3)			     OpenSSL			      SSL_library_init(3)

NAME
       SSL_library_init, OpenSSL_add_ssl_algorithms, SSLeay_add_ssl_algorithms - initialize SSL
       library by registering algorithms

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/ssl.h>

	int SSL_library_init(void);
	#define OpenSSL_add_ssl_algorithms()	SSL_library_init()
	#define SSLeay_add_ssl_algorithms()	SSL_library_init()

DESCRIPTION
       SSL_library_init() registers the available ciphers and digests.

       OpenSSL_add_ssl_algorithms() and SSLeay_add_ssl_algorithms() are synonyms for
       SSL_library_init().

NOTES
       SSL_library_init() must be called before any other action takes place.

WARNING
       SSL_library_init() only registers ciphers. Another important initialization is the seeding
       of the PRNG (Pseudo Random Number Generator), which has to be performed separately.

EXAMPLES
       A typical TLS/SSL application will start with the library initialization, will provide
       readable error messages and will seed the PRNG.

	SSL_load_error_strings();		 /* readable error messages */
	SSL_library_init();			 /* initialize library */
	actions_to_seed_PRNG();

RETURN VALUES
       SSL_library_init() always returns "1", so it is safe to discard the return value.
