NAME

       libssh2_knownhost_writeline - convert a known host to a line for storage

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libssh2.h>

       libssh2_knownhost_writeline(LIBSSH2_KNOWNHOSTS *hosts,
                                   struct libssh2_knownhost *known,
                                   char *buffer, size_t buflen,
                                   size_t *outlen,
                                   int type);

DESCRIPTION

       Converts  a  single  known  host  to a single line of output for storage, using the 'type'
       output format.

       known identifies which particular known host

       buffer points to an allocated buffer

       buflen is the size of the buffer. See RETURN VALUE about the size.

       outlen must be a pointer to a size_t variable that will  get  the  output  length  of  the
       stored data chunk. The number does not included the trailing zero!

       type  specifies  what  file  type  it  is,  and LIBSSH2_KNOWNHOST_FILE_OPENSSH is the only
       currently supported format.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns a regular libssh2 error  code,  where  negative  values  are  error  codes  and  0
       indicates success.

       If  the  provided buffer is deemed too small to fit the data libssh2 wants to store in it,
       LIBSSH2_ERROR_BUFFER_TOO_SMALL will be returned. The application is then advised  to  call
       the  function  again  with  a  larger buffer. The outlen size will then hold the requested
       size.

AVAILABILITY

       Added in libssh2 1.2
