NAME         top

       gnutls_record_recv_packet - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       ssize_t gnutls_record_recv_packet(gnutls_session_t session,
       gnutls_packet_t * packet);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

       gnutls_packet_t * packet
                   the structure that will hold the packet data

DESCRIPTION         top

       This is a lower-level function than gnutls_record_recv() and allows
       to directly receive the whole decrypted packet. That avoids a memory
       copy, and is intended to be used by applications seeking high

       The received packet is accessed using gnutls_packet_get() and must be
       deinitialized using gnutls_packet_deinit(). The returned packet will
       be NULL if the return value is zero (EOF).

RETURNS         top

       The number of bytes received and zero on EOF (for stream
       connections).  A negative error code is returned in case of an error.
