CONF_modules_free, CONF_modules_finish, CONF_modules_unload -
OpenSSL configuration cleanup functions


#include <openssl/conf.h>
void CONF_modules_free(void);
void CONF_modules_finish(void);
void CONF_modules_unload(int all);


CONF_modules_free() closes down and frees up all memory allocated by all configuration modules.

CONF_modules_finish() calls each configuration modules finish handler to free up any configuration that module may have performed.

CONF_modules_unload() finishes and unloads configuration modules. If all is set to 0 only modules loaded from DSOs will be unloads. If all is 1 all modules, including builtin modules will be unloaded.


Normally applications will only call CONF_modules_free() at application to tidy up any configuration performed.

Return Value

None of the functions return a value.
