NAME         top

       gnutls_session_set_data - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_session_set_data(gnutls_session_t session, const void *
       session_data, size_t session_data_size);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

       const void * session_data
                   is a pointer to space to hold the session.

       size_t session_data_size
                   is the session's size

DESCRIPTION         top

       Sets all session parameters, in order to resume a previously
       established session.  The session data given must be the one returned
       by gnutls_session_get_data().  This function should be called before

       Keep in mind that session resuming is advisory. The server may choose
       not to resume the session, thus a full handshake will be performed.

RETURNS         top

       On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise an error code
       is returned.
