gnutls_check_version — API function


#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

const char * gnutls_check_version(const char * req_version);


const char * req_version
version string to compare with, or NULL.


Check the GnuTLS Library version against the provided string. See GNUTLS_VERSION for a suitable req_version string.

See also gnutls_check_version_numeric(), which provides this functionality as a macro.


Check that the version of the library is at minimum the one given as a string in req_version and return the actual version string of the library; return NULL if the condition is not met. If NULL is passed to this function no check is done and only the version string is returned.
