       asn1_read_value_type - API function


       #include <libtasn1.h>

       int  asn1_read_value_type(asn1_node  root,  const  char  * name, void * ivalue, int * len,
       unsigned int * etype);


       asn1_node root
                   pointer to a structure.

       const char * name
                   the name of the element inside a structure that you want to read.

       void * ivalue
                   vector that will contain the element's content, must be a  pointer  to  memory
                   cells already allocated (may be NULL).

       int * len   number  of  bytes of *value: value[0]..value[len-1]. Initialy holds the sizeof

       unsigned int * etype
                   The type of the value read (ASN1_ETYPE)


       Returns the type and value of one element inside a structure.  If an element  is  OPTIONAL
       and  this returns ASN1_ELEMENT_NOT_FOUND, it means that this element wasn't present in the
       der encoding that created the structure.  The first element of a SEQUENCE_OF or SET_OF  is
       named  "?1".  The  second  one "?2" and so on. If the  root provided is a node to specific
       sequence element, then the keyword "?CURRENT" is also acceptable and indicates the current
       sequence element of this node.

       Note  that  there  can  be valid values with length zero. In these case this function will
       succeed and  len will be zero.


       VALUE will contain a two's complement form integer.

       integer=-1  -> value[0]=0xFF , len=1.  integer=1   -> value[0]=0x01 , len=1.


       As INTEGER (but only with not negative numbers).


       VALUE will be the null terminated string "TRUE" or "FALSE" and LEN=5 or LEN=6.

       OBJECT IDENTIFIER: VALUE will be a null terminated string with each number separated by  a
       dot (i.e. "").

       LEN = strlen(VALUE)+1


       VALUE  will  be a null terminated string in one of these formats: "YYMMDDhhmmss+hh'mm'" or
       "YYMMDDhhmmss-hh'mm'".  LEN=strlen(VALUE)+1.


       VALUE will be a null terminated string in the same format used to set the value.

       OCTET STRING: VALUE will contain the octet string and LEN will be the number of octets.


       VALUE will contain the generalstring and LEN will be the number of octets.

       BIT STRING: VALUE will contain the bit string organized by  bytes  and  LEN  will  be  the
       number of bits.


       If NAME indicates a choice type, VALUE will specify the alternative selected.


       If  NAME  indicates  an  any  type,  VALUE will indicate the DER encoding of the structure
       actually used.


       ASN1_SUCCESS if value is returned, ASN1_ELEMENT_NOT_FOUND if  name is not a valid element,
       ASN1_VALUE_NOT_FOUND if there isn't any value for the element selected, and ASN1_MEM_ERROR
       if The value vector isn't big enough to store the result,  and  in  this  case   len  will
       contain the number of bytes needed.
