SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

       gnutls_pull_func pull_func
                   a callback function similar to read()

DESCRIPTION         top

       This is the function where you set a function for gnutls to receive
       data.  Normally, if you use berkeley style sockets, do not need to
       use this function since the default recv(2) will probably be ok.  The
       callback should return 0 on connection termination, a positive number
       indicating the number of bytes received, and -1 on error.

        gnutls_pull_func is of the form, ssize_t
       (*gnutls_pull_func)(gnutls_transport_ptr_t, void*, size_t);
