NAME
ASN1_STRING_new, ASN1_STRING_type_new, ASN1_STRING_free - ASN1_STRING allocation functions
SYNOPSIS
ASN1_STRING * ASN1_STRING_new(void); ASN1_STRING * ASN1_STRING_type_new(int type); void ASN1_STRING_free(ASN1_STRING *a);
DESCRIPTION
ASN1_STRING_new() returns an allocated ASN1_STRING structure. Its type is undefined. ASN1_STRING_type_new() returns an allocated ASN1_STRING structure of type type. ASN1_STRING_free() frees up a.
NOTES
Other string types call the ASN1_STRING functions. For example ASN1_OCTET_STRING_new() calls ASN1_STRING_type(V_ASN1_OCTET_STRING).
RETURN VALUES
ASN1_STRING_new() and ASN1_STRING_type_new() return a valid ASN1_STRING structure or NULL if an error occurred. ASN1_STRING_free() does not return a value.
