NAME

       libssh2_session_init_ex - initializes an SSH session object

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libssh2.h>

       LIBSSH2_SESSION          *         libssh2_session_init_ex(LIBSSH2_ALLOC_FUNC((*myalloc)),
       LIBSSH2_FREE_FUNC((*myfree)), LIBSSH2_REALLOC_FUNC((*myrealloc)), void *abstract);

       LIBSSH2_SESSION * libssh2_session_init(void);

DESCRIPTION

       myalloc - Custom allocator function. Refer to the section on Callbacks for implementing an
       allocator callback. Pass a value of NULL to use the default system allocator.

       myfree  - Custom de-allocator function. Refer to the section on Callbacks for implementing
       a deallocator callback. Pass a value of NULL to use the default system deallocator.

       myrealloc  -  Custom  re-allocator  function.  Refer  to  the  section  on  Callbacks  for
       implementing  a  reallocator  callback.  Pass  a  value  of NULL to use the default system
       reallocator.

       abstract - Arbitrary pointer to application specific callback data.  This  value  will  be
       passed to any callback function associated with the named session instance.

       Initializes  an SSH session object. By default system memory allocators (malloc(), free(),
       realloc()) will be used for any dynamically  allocated  memory  blocks.  Alternate  memory
       allocation  functions may be specified using the extended version of this API call, and/or
       optional application specific data may be attached to the session object.

       This method must be called first, prior to configuring session options or starting  up  an
       SSH session with a remote server.

RETURN VALUE

       Pointer to a newly allocated LIBSSH2_SESSION instance, or NULL on errors.
