NAME         top

       gnutls_x509_crt_list_import - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_crt_list_import(gnutls_x509_crt_t * certs,
       unsigned int * cert_max, const gnutls_datum_t * data,
       gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format, unsigned int flags);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_x509_crt_t * certs
                   Indicates where the parsed list will be copied to.
                   Must not be initialized.

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

       const gnutls_datum_t * data
                   The PEM encoded certificate.

       gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format
                   One of DER or PEM.

       unsigned int flags
                   must be (0) or an OR'd sequence of

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will convert the given PEM encoded certificate list
       to the native gnutls_x509_crt_t format. The output will be stored
       in  certs .  They will be automatically initialized.

       The flag GNUTLS_X509_CRT_LIST_IMPORT_FAIL_IF_EXCEED will cause
       import to fail if the certificates in the provided buffer are
       more than the available structures. The
       GNUTLS_X509_CRT_LIST_FAIL_IF_UNSORTED flag will cause the
       function to fail if the provided list is not sorted from subject
       to issuer.

       If the Certificate is PEM encoded it should have a header of
