ERR_load_crypto_strings(3)          OpenSSL         ERR_load_crypto_strings(3)



NAME
       ERR_load_crypto_strings, SSL_load_error_strings, ERR_free_strings -
       load and free error strings

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

SYNOPSIS
       Deprecated:

        #include <openssl/err.h>

        #if OPENSSL_API_COMPAT < 0x10100000L
        void ERR_load_crypto_strings(void);
        void ERR_free_strings(void);
        #endif

        #include <openssl/ssl.h>

        #if OPENSSL_API_COMPAT < 0x10100000L
        void SSL_load_error_strings(void);
        #endif

DESCRIPTION
       ERR_load_crypto_strings() registers the error strings for all libcrypto
       functions. SSL_load_error_strings() does the same, but also registers
       the libssl error strings.

       In versions prior to OpenSSL 1.1.0, ERR_free_strings() releases any
       resources created by the above functions.

RETURN VALUES
       ERR_load_crypto_strings(), SSL_load_error_strings() and
       ERR_free_strings() return no values.

SEE ALSO
       ERR_error_string(3)

HISTORY
       The ERR_load_crypto_strings(), SSL_load_error_strings(), and
       ERR_free_strings() functions were deprecated in OpenSSL 1.1.0 by
       OPENSSL_init_crypto() and OPENSSL_init_ssl() and should not be used.
