NAME         top

       gnutls_srp_base64_encode - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_srp_base64_encode(const gnutls_datum_t * data, char *
       result, size_t * result_size);

ARGUMENTS         top

       const gnutls_datum_t * data
                   contain the raw data

       char * result
                   the place where base64 data will be copied

       size_t * result_size
                   holds the size of the result

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will convert the given data to printable data, using
       the base64 encoding, as used in the libsrp.  This is the encoding
       used in SRP password files.  If the provided buffer is not long
       enough GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER is returned.

       Warning!  This base64 encoding is not the "standard" encoding, so do
       not use it for non-SRP purposes.

RETURNS         top

       GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER if the buffer given is not long enough,
       or 0 on success.
