NAME         top

       gnutls_pkcs11_init - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/pkcs11.h>

       int gnutls_pkcs11_init(unsigned int flags, const char *

ARGUMENTS         top

       unsigned int flags
                   An ORed sequence of GNUTLS_PKCS11_FLAG_*

       const char * deprecated_config_file
                   either NULL or the location of a deprecated
                   configuration file

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will initialize the PKCS 11 subsystem in gnutls. It
       will read configuration files if GNUTLS_PKCS11_FLAG_AUTO is used
       or allow you to independently load PKCS 11 modules using
       gnutls_pkcs11_add_provider() if GNUTLS_PKCS11_FLAG_MANUAL is

       You don't need to call this function since GnuTLS 3.3.0 because
       it is being called during the first request PKCS 11 operation.
       That call will assume the GNUTLS_PKCS11_FLAG_AUTO flag. If
       another flags are required then it must be called independently
       prior to any PKCS 11 operation.

RETURNS         top

       On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a
       negative error value.
