SYNOPSIS         top

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

DESCRIPTION         top

       Sends an alert to the peer depending on the error code returned
       by a gnutls function. This function will call
       gnutls_error_to_alert() to determine the appropriate alert to

       This function may also return GNUTLS_E_AGAIN, or

       This function historically was always sending an alert to the
       peer, even if  err was inappropriate to respond with an alert
       (e.g., GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS). Since 3.6.6 this function returns
       success without transmitting any data on error codes that should
       not result to an alert.

RETURNS         top

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