       For all of the functions below that set the supported groups there must
       be at least one group in the list.

       SSL_CTX_set1_groups() sets the supported groups for ctx to glistlen
       groups in the array glist. The array consist of all NIDs of groups in
       preference order. For a TLS client the groups are used directly in the
       supported groups extension. For a TLS server the groups are used to
       determine the set of shared groups.

       SSL_CTX_set1_groups_list() sets the supported groups for ctx to string
       list. The string is a colon separated list of group NIDs or names, for
       example "P-521:P-384:P-256".

       SSL_set1_groups() and SSL_set1_groups_list() are similar except they
       set supported groups for the SSL structure ssl.

       SSL_get1_groups() returns the set of supported groups sent by a client
       in the supported groups extension. It returns the total number of
       supported groups. The groups parameter can be NULL to simply return the
       number of groups for memory allocation purposes. The groups array is in
       the form of a set of group NIDs in preference order. It can return zero
       if the client did not send a supported groups extension.

       SSL_get_shared_group() returns shared group n for a server-side SSL
       ssl. If n is -1 then the total number of shared groups is returned,
       which may be zero. Other than for diagnostic purposes, most
       applications will only be interested in the first shared group so n is
       normally set to zero. If the value n is out of range, NID_undef is

       All these functions are implemented as macros.

       The curve functions are synonyms for the equivalently named group
       functions and are identical in every respect. They exist because, prior
       to TLS1.3, there was only the concept of supported curves. In TLS1.3
       this was renamed to supported groups, and extended to include Diffie
       Hellman groups. The group functions should be used in preference.

       If an application wishes to make use of several of these functions for
       configuration purposes either on a command line or in a file it should
       consider using the SSL_CONF interface instead of manually parsing

       SSL_CTX_set1_groups(), SSL_CTX_set1_groups_list(), SSL_set1_groups()
       and SSL_set1_groups_list(), return 1 for success and 0 for failure.

       SSL_get1_groups() returns the number of groups, which may be zero.

       SSL_get_shared_group() returns the NID of shared group n or NID_undef
       if there is no shared group n; or the total number of shared groups if
       n is -1.

       When called on a client ssl, SSL_get_shared_group() has no meaning and
       returns -1.


       The curve functions were added in OpenSSL 1.0.2. The equivalent group
       functions were added in OpenSSL 1.1.1.
