In the description here, TYPE is used a placeholder for any of the OpenSSL datatypes listed in CRYPTO_get_ex_new_index(3).

These functions handle application-specific data for OpenSSL data structures.

TYPE_get_new_ex_index() is a macro that calls CRYPTO_get_ex_new_index() with the correct index value.

TYPE_set_ex_data() is a function that calls CRYPTO_set_ex_data() with an offset into the opaque exdata part of the TYPE object.

TYPE_get_ex_data() is a function that calls CRYPTO_get_ex_data() with an an offset into the opaque exdata part of the TYPE object.
