gnutls_pem_base64_decode2 - API function

#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_pem_base64_decode2(const char * header, const gnutls_datum_t * b64_data, gnutls_datum_t * result);

The PEM header (eg. CERTIFICATE)
contains the encoded data
the location of decoded data

This function will decode the given encoded data. The decoded data will be allocated, and stored into result. If the header given is non null this function will search for "-----BEGIN header" and decode only this part. Otherwise it will decode the first PEM packet found.

You should use gnutls_free() to free the returned data.

Note, that prior to GnuTLS 3.4.0 this function was available under the name gnutls_pem_base64_decode_alloc(). There is compatibility macro pointing to this function.

On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise an error code is returned.
