NAME

       ASN1_STRING_new, ASN1_STRING_type_new, ASN1_STRING_free - ASN1_STRING allocation functions

SYNOPSIS

        #include <openssl/asn1.h>

        ASN1_STRING * ASN1_STRING_new(void);
        ASN1_STRING * ASN1_STRING_type_new(int type);
        void ASN1_STRING_free(ASN1_STRING *a);

DESCRIPTION

       ASN1_STRING_new() returns an allocated ASN1_STRING structure. Its type is undefined.

       ASN1_STRING_type_new() returns an allocated ASN1_STRING structure of type type.

       ASN1_STRING_free() frees up a.  If a is NULL nothing is done.

NOTES

       Other string types call the ASN1_STRING functions. For example ASN1_OCTET_STRING_new()
       calls ASN1_STRING_type(V_ASN1_OCTET_STRING).

RETURN VALUES

       ASN1_STRING_new() and ASN1_STRING_type_new() return a valid ASN1_STRING structure or NULL
       if an error occurred.

       ASN1_STRING_free() does not return a value.
