NAME         top

       gnutls_range_split - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_range_split(gnutls_session_t session, const
       gnutls_range_st * orig, gnutls_range_st * next, gnutls_range_st *

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type

       const gnutls_range_st * orig
                   is the original range provided by the user

       gnutls_range_st * next
                   is the returned range that can be conveyed in a TLS

       gnutls_range_st * remainder
                   is the returned remaining range

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function should be used when it is required to hide the
       length of very long data that cannot be directly provided to
       gnutls_record_send_range().  In that case this function should be
       called with the desired length hiding range in  orig . The
       returned  next value should then be used in the next call to
       gnutls_record_send_range() with the partial data.  That process
       should be repeated until  remainder is (0,0).

RETURNS         top

       0 in case splitting succeeds, non zero in case of error.  Note
       that  orig is not changed, while the values of  next and
       remainder are modified to store the resulting values.
