NAME         top

       gnutls_x509_cidr_to_rfc5280 - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_cidr_to_rfc5280(const char * cidr, gnutls_datum_t
       * cidr_rfc5280);

ARGUMENTS         top

       const char * cidr
                   CIDR in RFC4632 format (IP/prefix), null-terminated

       gnutls_datum_t * cidr_rfc5280
                   CIDR range converted to RFC5280 format

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will convert text CIDR range with prefix (such as
       '') to RFC5280 (IP address in network byte order
       followed by its network mask).  Works for both IPv4 and IPv6.

       The resulting object is directly usable for IP name constraints
       usage, for example in functions
       gnutls_x509_name_constraints_add_permitted or

       The data in datum needs to be deallocated using gnutls_free().

RETURNS         top

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