ERR_load_crypto_strings(3)					      OpenSSL						ERR_load_crypto_strings(3)

NAME
ERR_load_crypto_strings, SSL_load_error_strings, ERR_free_strings - load and free error strings
SYNOPSIS
#include <openssl/err.h> void ERR_load_crypto_strings(void); void ERR_free_strings(void); #include <openssl/ssl.h> void SSL_load_error_strings(void);
DESCRIPTION
ERR_load_crypto_strings() registers the error strings for all libcrypto functions. SSL_load_error_strings() does the same, but also regis- ters the libssl error strings. One of these functions should be called before generating textual error messages. However, this is not required when memory usage is an issue. ERR_free_strings() frees all previously loaded error strings.
RETURN VALUES
ERR_load_crypto_strings(), SSL_load_error_strings() and ERR_free_strings() return no values.
SEE ALSO
err(3), ERR_error_string(3)
HISTORY
ERR_load_error_strings(), SSL_load_error_strings() and ERR_free_strings() are available in all versions of SSLeay and OpenSSL. 0.9.7a 2000-02-24 ERR_load_crypto_strings(3)
