#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_pem_base64_decode(const char * header, const gnutls_datum_t * b64_data, unsigned char * result, size_t * result_size);


const char * header
A null terminated string with the PEM header (eg. CERTIFICATE)
const gnutls_datum_t * b64_data
contain the encoded data
unsigned char * result
the place where decoded data will be copied
