SSL_CONF_CTX_new, SSL_CONF_CTX_free - SSL configuration allocation functions

#include <openssl/ssl.h>
void SSL_CONF_CTX_free(SSL_CONF_CTX *cctx);

The function SSL_CONF_CTX_new() allocates and initialises an SSL_CONF_CTX structure for use with the SSL_CONF functions.

The function SSL_CONF_CTX_free() frees up the context cctx. If cctx is NULL nothing is done.

SSL_CONF_CTX_new() returns either the newly allocated SSL_CONF_CTX structure or NULL if an error occurs.

SSL_CONF_CTX_free() does not return a value.
