NAME

       SSL_want, SSL_want_nothing, SSL_want_read, SSL_want_write, SSL_want_x509_lookup,
       SSL_want_async, SSL_want_async_job, SSL_want_client_hello_cb - obtain state information
       TLS/SSL I/O operation

SYNOPSIS

        #include <openssl/ssl.h>

        int SSL_want(const SSL *ssl);
        int SSL_want_nothing(const SSL *ssl);
        int SSL_want_read(const SSL *ssl);
        int SSL_want_write(const SSL *ssl);
        int SSL_want_x509_lookup(const SSL *ssl);
        int SSL_want_async(const SSL *ssl);
        int SSL_want_async_job(const SSL *ssl);
        int SSL_want_client_hello_cb(const SSL *ssl);

DESCRIPTION

       SSL_want() returns state information for the SSL object ssl.

       The other SSL_want_*() calls are shortcuts for the possible states returned by SSL_want().

NOTES

       SSL_want() examines the internal state information of the SSL object. Its return values
       are similar to that of SSL_get_error(3).  Unlike SSL_get_error(3), which also evaluates
       the error queue, the results are obtained by examining an internal state flag only. The
       information must therefore only be used for normal operation under non-blocking I/O. Error
       conditions are not handled and must be treated using SSL_get_error(3).

       The result returned by SSL_want() should always be consistent with the result of
       SSL_get_error(3).

RETURN VALUES

       The following return values can currently occur for SSL_want():

       SSL_NOTHING
           There is no data to be written or to be read.

       SSL_WRITING
           There are data in the SSL buffer that must be written to the underlying BIO layer in
           order to complete the actual SSL_*() operation.  A call to SSL_get_error(3) should
           return SSL_ERROR_WANT_WRITE.

       SSL_READING
           More data must be read from the underlying BIO layer in order to complete the actual
           SSL_*() operation.  A call to SSL_get_error(3) should return SSL_ERROR_WANT_READ.

       SSL_X509_LOOKUP
           The operation did not complete because an application callback set by
           SSL_CTX_set_client_cert_cb() has asked to be called again.  A call to SSL_get_error(3)
           should return SSL_ERROR_WANT_X509_LOOKUP.

       SSL_ASYNC_PAUSED
           An asynchronous operation partially completed and was then paused. See
           SSL_get_all_async_fds(3). A call to SSL_get_error(3) should return
           SSL_ERROR_WANT_ASYNC.

       SSL_ASYNC_NO_JOBS
           The asynchronous job could not be started because there were no async jobs available
           in the pool (see ASYNC_init_thread(3)). A call to SSL_get_error(3) should return
           SSL_ERROR_WANT_ASYNC_JOB.

       SSL_CLIENT_HELLO_CB
           The operation did not complete because an application callback set by
           SSL_CTX_set_client_hello_cb() has asked to be called again.  A call to
           SSL_get_error(3) should return SSL_ERROR_WANT_CLIENT_HELLO_CB.

       SSL_want_nothing(), SSL_want_read(), SSL_want_write(), SSL_want_x509_lookup(),
       SSL_want_async(), SSL_want_async_job(), and SSL_want_client_hello_cb() return 1, when the
       corresponding condition is true or 0 otherwise.

HISTORY

       The SSL_want_client_hello_cb() function and the SSL_CLIENT_HELLO_CB return value were
       added in OpenSSL 1.1.1.
