gnutls_pcert_list_import_x509_file - API function

#include <gnutls/abstract.h>

int gnutls_pcert_list_import_x509_file(gnutls_pcert_st * pcert_list, unsigned * pcert_list_size, const char * file, gnutls_x509_crt_fmt_t format, gnutls_pin_callback_t pin_fn, void * pin_fn_userdata, unsigned int flags);

The structures to store the certificates; must not contain initialized gnutls_pcert_st structures.
Initially must hold the maximum number of certs. It will be updated with the number of certs available.
A file or supported URI with the certificates to load
GNUTLS_X509_FMT_DER or GNUTLS_X509_FMT_PEM if a file is given
a PIN callback if not globally set
parameter for the PIN callback
zero or flags from gnutls_certificate_import_flags

This convenience function will import a certificate chain from the given file or supported URI to gnutls_pcert_st structures. The structures must be deinitialized afterwards using gnutls_pcert_deinit().

This function will always return a sorted certificate chain.

On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error value; if the pcert list doesn't have enough space GNUTLS_E_SHORT_MEMORY_BUFFER will be returned.
