OPENSSL_Applink — glue between OpenSSL BIO and Win32 compiler run-time


__declspec(dllexport) void **OPENSSL_Applink();


OPENSSL_Applink is application-side interface which provides a glue between OpenSSL BIO layer and Win32 compiler run-time environment. Even though it appears at application side, it's essentially OpenSSL private interface. For this reason application developers are not expected to implement it, but to compile provided module with compiler of their choice and link it into the target application. The referred module is available as applink.c, located alongside the public header files (only on the platforms where applicable).
