ERR_load_crypto_strings() registers the error strings for all libcrypto functions. SSL_load_error_strings() does the same, but also registers the libssl error strings.

In versions prior to OpenSSL 1.1.0, ERR_free_strings() releases any resources created by the above functions.

Return Values

ERR_load_crypto_strings(), SSL_load_error_strings() and ERR_free_strings() return no values.
