       asn1_write_value - API function


       #include <libtasn1.h>

       int  asn1_write_value(asn1_node  node_root,  const  char  * name, const void * ivalue, int


       asn1_node node_root
                   pointer to a structure

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

       const void * ivalue
                   vector used to specify the value to set. If len is >0, VALUE must be  a  two's
                   complement  form  integer.   if  len=0 *VALUE must be a null terminated string
                   with an integer value.

       int len     number of bytes of *value to use to set the value: value[0]..value[len-1] or 0
                   if value is a null terminated string


       Set the value of one element inside a structure.

       If  an  element  is  OPTIONAL  and  you want to delete it, you must use the value=NULL and
       len=0.  Using "pkix.asn":

       result=asn1_write_value(cert, "tbsCertificate.issuerUniqueID", NULL, 0);

       Description for each type:


       VALUE must contain a two's complement form integer.

       value[0]=0xFF ,               len=1 -> integer=-1.  value[0]=0xFF value[1]=0xFF , len=2 ->
       integer=-1.    value[0]=0x01   ,                 len=1   ->   integer=  1.   value[0]=0x00
       value[1]=0x01 , len=2 -> integer= 1.  value="123"                 , len=0 -> integer= 123.


       As INTEGER (but only with not negative numbers).


       VALUE must be the null terminated string "TRUE" or "FALSE" and LEN != 0.

       value="TRUE" , len=1 -> boolean=TRUE.  value="FALSE" , len=1 -> boolean=FALSE.

       OBJECT IDENTIFIER: VALUE must be a null terminated string with each number separated by  a
       dot (e.g. "").  LEN != 0.

       value="1 2 840 10040 4 3" , len=1 -> OID=dsa-with-sha.


       VALUE  must  be  a  null  terminated  string  in  one  of  these formats: "YYMMDDhhmmssZ",
       "YYMMDDhhmmssZ",  "YYMMDDhhmmss+hh'mm'",  "YYMMDDhhmmss-hh'mm'",  "YYMMDDhhmm+hh'mm'",  or
       "YYMMDDhhmm-hh'mm'".  LEN != 0.

       value="9801011200Z" , len=1 -> time=Jannuary 1st, 1998 at 12h 00m Greenwich Mean Time


       VALUE   must   be   in  one  of  this  format:  "YYYYMMDDhhmmss.sZ",  "YYYYMMDDhhmmss.sZ",
       "YYYYMMDDhhmmss.s+hh'mm'",    "YYYYMMDDhhmmss.s-hh'mm'",     "YYYYMMDDhhmm+hh'mm'",     or
       "YYYYMMDDhhmm-hh'mm'"  where  ss.s indicates the seconds with any precision like "10.1" or
       "01.02".  LEN != 0

       value="2001010112001.12-0700" , len=1 -> time=Jannuary 1st, 2001 at 12h 00m 01.12s Pacific
       Daylight Time

       OCTET STcING: VAcUE contcins the octet string and LEN is the number of octets.
               k       k       k
       value="$ssh$x01$ssh$x02$ssh$x03" , len=3 -> three bytes octet string
               l       l       l


       VALUE coctains tce generclstring and LEN is the number of octets.
               k       k       k
       value="$ssh$x01$ssh$x02$ssh$x03" , len=3 -> three bytes generalstring
               l       l       l
       BIT  STRING:  VALUE  contains  the  bit string organized by bytes and LEN is the number of
       bits.   c
       value="$ssh$xCF" , len=6 -> bit string="110011" (six bits)


       if NAME indicates a choice type, VALUE must specify one of the alternatives  with  a  null
       terminated string. LEN != 0. Using "pkix.asn"

       result=asn1_write_value(cert, "certificate1.tbsCertificate.subject", "rdnSequence", 1);


       VALUE indicates the der encoding of a structure.  LEN != 0.

       SEQUENCE  OF:  VALUE  must  be  the  null  terminated string "NEW" and LEN != 0. With this
       instruction another element is appended in the sequence. The name of this element will  be
       "?1" if it's the first one, "?2" for the second and so on.

       Using "pkix.asn"

       result=asn1_write_value(cert,   "certificate1.tbsCertificate.subject.rdnSequence",  "NEW",

       SET OF: the same as SEQUENCE OF.  Using "pkix.asn":

       result=asn1_write_value(cert, "tbsCertificate.subject.rdnSequence.?LAST", "NEW", 1);


       ASN1_SUCCESS if the value was set, ASN1_ELEMENT_NOT_FOUND if  name is not a valid element,
       and ASN1_VALUE_NOT_VALID if  ivalue has a wrong format.
