       SSL_free - free an allocated SSL structure

	#include <openssl/ssl.h>

	void SSL_free(SSL *ssl);

       SSL_free() decrements the reference count of ssl, and removes the SSL structure pointed to
       by ssl and frees up the allocated memory if the the reference count has reached 0.

       SSL_free() also calls the free()ing procedures for indirectly affected items, if applica-
       ble: the buffering BIO, the read and write BIOs, cipher lists specially created for this
       ssl, the SSL_SESSION.  Do not explicitly free these indirectly freed up items before or
       after calling SSL_free(), as trying to free things twice may lead to program failure.

       The ssl session has reference counts from two users: the SSL object, for which the refer-
       ence count is removed by SSL_free() and the internal session cache. If the session is con-
       sidered bad, because SSL_shutdown(3) was not called for the connection and SSL_set_shut-
       down(3) was not used to set the SSL_SENT_SHUTDOWN state, the session will also be removed
       from the session cache as required by RFC2246.

       SSL_free() does not provide diagnostic information.
