DESCRIPTION

       The BIO_METHOD type is a structure used for the implementation of new BIO types. It
       provides a set of functions used by OpenSSL for the implementation of the various BIO
       capabilities. See the bio page for more information.

       BIO_meth_new() creates a new BIO_METHOD structure. It should be given a unique integer
       type and a string that represents its name.  Use BIO_get_new_index() to get the value for
       type.

       The set of standard OpenSSL provided BIO types is provided in bio.h. Some examples include
       BIO_TYPE_BUFFER and BIO_TYPE_CIPHER. Filter BIOs should have a type which have the
       "filter" bit set (BIO_TYPE_FILTER). Source/sink BIOs should have the "source/sink" bit set
       (BIO_TYPE_SOURCE_SINK). File descriptor based BIOs (e.g. socket, fd, connect, accept etc)
       should additionally have the "descriptor" bit set (BIO_TYPE_DESCRIPTOR). See the
       BIO_find_type page for more information.

       BIO_meth_free() destroys a BIO_METHOD structure and frees up any memory associated with
       it.

       BIO_meth_get_write_ex() and BIO_meth_set_write_ex() get and set the function used for
       writing arbitrary length data to the BIO respectively. This function will be called in
       response to the application calling BIO_write_ex() or BIO_write(). The parameters for the
       function have the same meaning as for BIO_write_ex(). Older code may call
       BIO_meth_get_write() and BIO_meth_set_write() instead. Applications should not call both
       BIO_meth_set_write_ex() and BIO_meth_set_write() or call BIO_meth_get_write() when the
       function was set with BIO_meth_set_write_ex().

       BIO_meth_get_read_ex() and BIO_meth_set_read_ex() get and set the function used for
       reading arbitrary length data from the BIO respectively. This function will be called in
       response to the application calling BIO_read_ex() or BIO_read().  The parameters for the
       function have the same meaning as for BIO_read_ex().  Older code may call
       BIO_meth_get_read() and BIO_meth_set_read() instead.  Applications should not call both
       BIO_meth_set_read_ex() and BIO_meth_set_read() or call BIO_meth_get_read() when the
       function was set with BIO_meth_set_read_ex().

       BIO_meth_get_puts() and BIO_meth_set_puts() get and set the function used for writing a
       NULL terminated string to the BIO respectively. This function will be called in response
       to the application calling BIO_puts(). The parameters for the function have the same
       meaning as for BIO_puts().

       BIO_meth_get_gets() and BIO_meth_set_gets() get and set the function typically used for
       reading a line of data from the BIO respectively (see the BIO_gets(3) page for more
       information). This function will be called in response to the application calling
       BIO_gets(). The parameters for the function have the same meaning as for BIO_gets().

       BIO_meth_get_ctrl() and BIO_meth_set_ctrl() get and set the function used for processing
       ctrl messages in the BIO respectively. See the BIO_ctrl page for more information. This
       function will be called in response to the application calling BIO_ctrl(). The parameters
       for the function have the same meaning as for BIO_ctrl().

       BIO_meth_get_create() and BIO_meth_set_create() get and set the function used for creating
       a new instance of the BIO respectively. This function will be called in response to the
       application calling BIO_new() and passing in a pointer to the current BIO_METHOD. The
       BIO_new() function will allocate the memory for the new BIO, and a pointer to this newly
       allocated structure will be passed as a parameter to the function.

       BIO_meth_get_destroy() and BIO_meth_set_destroy() get and set the function used for
       destroying an instance of a BIO respectively. This function will be called in response to
       the application calling BIO_free(). A pointer to the BIO to be destroyed is passed as a
       parameter. The destroy function should be used for BIO specific clean up. The memory for
       the BIO itself should not be freed by this function.

       BIO_meth_get_callback_ctrl() and BIO_meth_set_callback_ctrl() get and set the function
       used for processing callback ctrl messages in the BIO respectively. See the
       BIO_callback_ctrl(3) page for more information. This function will be called in response
       to the application calling BIO_callback_ctrl(). The parameters for the function have the
       same meaning as for BIO_callback_ctrl().

RETURN VALUES

       BIO_get_new_index() returns the new BIO type value or -1 if an error occurred.

       BIO_meth_new(int type, const char *name) returns a valid BIO_METHOD or NULL if an error
       occurred.

       The BIO_meth_set functions return 1 on success or 0 on error.

       The BIO_meth_get functions return the corresponding function pointers.
