NAME

       SSL_state_string, SSL_state_string_long - get textual description of state of an SSL
       object

SYNOPSIS

        #include <openssl/ssl.h>

        const char *SSL_state_string(const SSL *ssl);
        const char *SSL_state_string_long(const SSL *ssl);

DESCRIPTION

       SSL_state_string() returns a 6 letter string indicating the current state of the SSL
       object ssl.

       SSL_state_string_long() returns a string indicating the current state of the SSL object
       ssl.

NOTES

       During its use, an SSL objects passes several states. The state is internally maintained.
       Querying the state information is not very informative before or when a connection has
       been established. It however can be of significant interest during the handshake.

       When using non-blocking sockets, the function call performing the handshake may return
       with SSL_ERROR_WANT_READ or SSL_ERROR_WANT_WRITE condition, so that
       SSL_state_string[_long]() may be called.

       For both blocking or non-blocking sockets, the details state information can be used
       within the info_callback function set with the SSL_set_info_callback() call.

RETURN VALUES

       Detailed description of possible states to be included later.
