globus_bool_t globus_error_match_openssl_error (globus_object_t *error, unsigned long library, unsigned long function, unsigned long reason)

Detailed Description

The functions in the Error Object Helper Functions section deal with Globus error objects constructed with OpenSSL error data. These functions manipulate the generic globus_object_t representation of an OpenSSL error.

Function Documentation

globus_bool_t globus_error_match_openssl_error (globus_object_t * error, unsigned long library, unsigned long function, unsigned long reason)

Check whether the error originated from a specific library, from a specific function and is of a specific type.

This function checks whether the error or any of it's causative errors originated from a specific library, specific function and is of a specific type.


error The error object for which to perform the check
library The library to check for
function The function to check for
reason The type to check for

Return values:

GLOBUS_TRUE Error matched
GLOBUS_FALSE Error failed to match

globus_object_t* globus_error_wrap_openssl_error (globus_module_descriptor_t * base_source, int error_type, const char * source_file, const char * source_func, int source_line, const char * format,  ...)

Wrap the OpenSSL error and create a wrapped globus error object from the error.

This function gets all the OpenSSL errors from the error list, and chains them using the globus error string object. The resulting globus error object is a wrapper to the OpenSSL error at the end of the chain.


base_source The module that the error was generated from
error_type The type of error encapsulating the OpenSSL error
source_file Name of file. Use FILE
source_func Name of function. Use _globus_func_name and declare your func with GlobusFuncName(<name>)
source_line Line number. Use LINE
format format string for the description of the error entry point where the OpenSSL error occurred, should be followed by parameters to fill the format string (like in printf).


The globus error object. A globus_result_t object can be created using the globus_error_put function
