NAME         top

       gnutls_pcert_list_import_x509_file - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/abstract.h>

       int gnutls_pcert_list_import_x509_file(gnutls_pcert_st *
       pcert_list, unsigned * pcert_list_size, const char * file,
       gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format, gnutls_pin_callback_t pin_fn, void
       * pin_fn_userdata, unsigned int flags);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_pcert_st * pcert_list
                   The structures to store the certificates; must not
                   contain initialized gnutls_pcert_st structures.

       unsigned * pcert_list_size
                   Initially must hold the maximum number of certs. It
                   will be updated with the number of certs available.

       const char * file
                   A file or supported URI with the certificates to load

       gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format
                   GNUTLS_X509_FMT_DER or GNUTLS_X509_FMT_PEM if a file
                   is given

       gnutls_pin_callback_t pin_fn
                   a PIN callback if not globally set

       void * pin_fn_userdata
                   parameter for the PIN callback

       unsigned int flags
                   zero or flags from gnutls_certificate_import_flags

DESCRIPTION         top

       This convenience function will import a certificate chain from
       the given file or supported URI to gnutls_pcert_st structures.
       The structures must be deinitialized afterwards using

       This function will always return a sorted certificate chain.

RETURNS         top

       On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a
