       SSL_get_error - obtain result code for TLS/SSL I/O operation

	#include <openssl/ssl.h>

	int SSL_get_error(SSL *ssl, int ret);

       SSL_get_error() returns a result code (suitable for the C "switch" statement) for a pre-
       ceding call to SSL_connect(), SSL_accept(), SSL_do_handshake(), SSL_read(), SSL_peek(), or
       SSL_write() on ssl.  The value returned by that TLS/SSL I/O function must be passed to
       SSL_get_error() in parameter ret.

       In addition to ssl and ret, SSL_get_error() inspects the current thread's OpenSSL error
       queue.  Thus, SSL_get_error() must be used in the same thread that performed the TLS/SSL
       I/O operation, and no other OpenSSL function calls should appear in between.  The current
       thread's error queue must be empty before the TLS/SSL I/O operation is attempted, or
       SSL_get_error() will not work reliably.

       The following return values can currently occur:

	   The TLS/SSL I/O operation completed.  This result code is returned if and only if ret
	   > 0.

	   The TLS/SSL connection has been closed.  If the protocol version is SSL 3.0 or TLS
	   1.0, this result code is returned only if a closure alert has occurred in the proto-
	   col, i.e. if the connection has been closed cleanly. Note that in this case
	   SSL_ERROR_ZERO_RETURN does not necessarily indicate that the underlying transport has
	   been closed.

	   The operation did not complete; the same TLS/SSL I/O function should be called again
	   later.  If, by then, the underlying BIO has data available for reading (if the result
	   code is SSL_ERROR_WANT_READ) or allows writing data (SSL_ERROR_WANT_WRITE), then some
	   TLS/SSL protocol progress will take place, i.e. at least part of an TLS/SSL record
	   will be read or written.  Note that the retry may again lead to a SSL_ERROR_WANT_READ
	   or SSL_ERROR_WANT_WRITE condition.  There is no fixed upper limit for the number of
	   iterations that may be necessary until progress becomes visible at application proto-
	   col level.

	   For socket BIOs (e.g. when SSL_set_fd() was used), select() or poll() on the underly-
	   ing socket can be used to find out when the TLS/SSL I/O function should be retried.

	   Caveat: Any TLS/SSL I/O function can lead to either of SSL_ERROR_WANT_READ and
	   SSL_ERROR_WANT_WRITE.  In particular, SSL_read() or SSL_peek() may want to write data
	   and SSL_write() may want to read data.  This is mainly because TLS/SSL handshakes may
	   occur at any time during the protocol (initiated by either the client or the server);
	   SSL_read(), SSL_peek(), and SSL_write() will handle any pending handshakes.

	   The operation did not complete; the same TLS/SSL I/O function should be called again
	   later. The underlying BIO was not connected yet to the peer and the call would block
	   in connect()/accept(). The SSL function should be called again when the connection is
	   established. These messages can only appear with a BIO_s_connect() or BIO_s_accept()
	   BIO, respectively.  In order to find out, when the connection has been successfully
	   established, on many platforms select() or poll() for writing on the socket file
	   descriptor can be used.

	   The operation did not complete because an application callback set by
	   SSL_CTX_set_client_cert_cb() has asked to be called again.  The TLS/SSL I/O function
	   should be called again later.  Details depend on the application.

	   Some I/O error occurred.  The OpenSSL error queue may contain more information on the
	   error.  If the error queue is empty (i.e. ERR_get_error() returns 0), ret can be used
	   to find out more about the error: If ret == 0, an EOF was observed that violates the
	   protocol.  If ret == -1, the underlying BIO reported an I/O error (for socket I/O on
	   Unix systems, consult errno for details).

	   A failure in the SSL library occurred, usually a protocol error.  The OpenSSL error
	   queue contains more information on the error.

       SSL_get_error() was added in SSLeay 0.8.
