NAME

       gnutls_global_set_mutex - API function

SYNOPSIS

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       void     gnutls_global_set_mutex(mutex_init_func     init,    mutex_deinit_func    deinit,
       mutex_lock_func lock, mutex_unlock_func unlock);

ARGUMENTS

       mutex_init_func init
                   mutex initialization function

       mutex_deinit_func deinit
                   mutex deinitialization function

       mutex_lock_func lock
                   mutex locking function

       mutex_unlock_func unlock
                   mutex unlocking function

DESCRIPTION

       With this function you are allowed to override the default mutex locks used in some  parts
       of  gnutls  and  dependent  libraries.  This  function should be used if you have complete
       control of your program and libraries.  Do not call  this  function  from  a  library,  or
       preferably  from  any application unless really needed to. GnuTLS will use the appropriate
       locks for the running system.

       Note that since the move to implicit initialization of GnuTLS  on  library  load,  calling
       this  function  will  deinitialize the library, and re-initialize it after the new locking
       functions are set.

       This function must be called prior to any other gnutls function.
