SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_dh_params_export_pkcs3(gnutls_dh_params_t params,
       gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format, unsigned char * params_data, size_t
       * params_data_size);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_dh_params_t params
                   Holds the DH parameters

       gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format

       size_t * params_data_size
                   holds the size of params_data (and will be replaced

       This function will export the given dh parameters to a PKCS3
       DHParams structure. This is the format generated by "openssl
       dhparam" tool.  If the buffer provided is not long enough to hold
       the output, then GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER will be returned.

       If the structure is PEM encoded, it will have a header of "BEGIN
