gnutls_priority_set_direct — API function


#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_priority_set_direct(gnutls_session_t session, const char * priorities, const char ** err_pos);


gnutls_session_t session

is a gnutls_session_t type.

const char * priorities

is a string describing priorities

const char ** err_pos

In case of an error this will have the position in the string the error occurred


Sets the priorities to use on the ciphers, key exchange methods, and macs.  This function avoids keeping a priority cache and is used to directly set string priorities to a TLS session.  For documentation check the gnutls_priority_init().

To use a reasonable default, consider using gnutls_set_default_priority(), or gnutls_set_default_priority_append() instead of this function.


On syntax error GNUTLS_E_INVALID_REQUEST is returned, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, or an error code.
