NAME

       DSA_SIG_new, DSA_SIG_free - allocate and free DSA signature objects

SYNOPSIS

        #include <openssl/dsa.h>

        DSA_SIG *DSA_SIG_new(void);

        void   DSA_SIG_free(DSA_SIG *a);

DESCRIPTION

       DSA_SIG_new() allocates and initializes a DSA_SIG structure.

       DSA_SIG_free() frees the DSA_SIG structure and its components. The values are erased
       before the memory is returned to the system.

RETURN VALUES

       If the allocation fails, DSA_SIG_new() returns NULL and sets an error code that can be
       obtained by ERR_get_error(3). Otherwise it returns a pointer to the newly allocated
       structure.

       DSA_SIG_free() returns no value.

HISTORY

       DSA_SIG_new() and DSA_SIG_free() were added in OpenSSL 0.9.3.
