BIO_get_data(3)                     OpenSSL                    BIO_get_data(3)

       BIO_set_data, BIO_get_data, BIO_set_init, BIO_get_init,
       BIO_set_shutdown, BIO_get_shutdown - functions for managing BIO state

       libcrypto, -lcrypto

        #include <openssl/bio.h>

        void BIO_set_data(BIO *a, void *ptr);
        void *BIO_get_data(BIO *a);
        void BIO_set_init(BIO *a, int init);
        int BIO_get_init(BIO *a);
        void BIO_set_shutdown(BIO *a, int shut);
        int BIO_get_shutdown(BIO *a);

       These functions are mainly useful when implementing a custom BIO.

       The BIO_set_data() function associates the custom data pointed to by
       ptr with the BIO. This data can subsequently be retrieved via a call to
       BIO_get_data().  This can be used by custom BIOs for storing
       implementation specific information.

       The BIO_set_init() function sets the value of the BIO's "init" flag to
       indicate whether initialisation has been completed for this BIO or not.
       A nonzero value indicates that initialisation is complete, whilst zero
       indicates that it is not.  Often initialisation will complete during
       initial construction of the BIO. For some BIOs however, initialisation
       may not complete until after additional steps have occurred (for
       example through calling custom ctrls). The BIO_get_init() function
       returns the value of the "init" flag.

       The BIO_set_shutdown() and BIO_get_shutdown() functions set and get the
       state of this BIO's shutdown (i.e. BIO_CLOSE) flag. If set then the
       underlying resource is also closed when the BIO is freed.

       BIO_get_data() returns a pointer to the implementation specific custom
       data associated with this BIO, or NULL if none has been set.

       BIO_get_init() returns the state of the BIO's init flag.

       BIO_get_shutdown() returns the stat of the BIO's shutdown (i.e.
       BIO_CLOSE) flag.
