NAME         top

       gnutls_x509_dn_get_str2 - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/x509.h>

       int gnutls_x509_dn_get_str2(gnutls_x509_dn_t dn, gnutls_datum_t *
       str, unsigned flags);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_x509_dn_t dn
                   a pointer to DN

       gnutls_datum_t * str
                   a datum that will hold the name

       unsigned flags
                   zero or GNUTLS_X509_DN_FLAG_COMPAT

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will allocate buffer and copy the name in the
       provided DN.  The name will be in the form
       "C=xxxx,O=yyyy,CN=zzzz" as described in RFC4514. The output
       string will be ASCII or UTF-8 encoded, depending on the
       certificate data.

       When the flag GNUTLS_X509_DN_FLAG_COMPAT is specified, the output
       format will match the format output by previous to 3.5.6 versions
       of GnuTLS which was not not fully RFC4514-compliant.

RETURNS         top

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