SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       ssize_t gnutls_record_recv_packet(gnutls_session_t session,
       gnutls_packet_t * packet);

DESCRIPTION         top

       This is a lower-level function than gnutls_record_recv() and
       allows to directly receive the whole decrypted packet. That
       avoids a memory copy, and is intended to be used by applications
       seeking high performance.

       The received packet is accessed using gnutls_packet_get() and
       must be deinitialized using gnutls_packet_deinit(). The returned
       packet will be NULL if the return value is zero (EOF).

RETURNS         top

       The number of bytes received and zero on EOF (for stream
       connections).  A negative error code is returned in case of an
