gnutls_record_get_direction — API function


#include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

int gnutls_record_get_direction(gnutls_session_t session);


gnutls_session_t session

is a gnutls_session_t type.


This function provides information about the internals of the record protocol and is only useful if a prior gnutls function call, e.g.  gnutls_handshake(), was interrupted for some reason. That is, if a function returned GNUTLS_E_INTERRUPTED or GNUTLS_E_AGAIN. In such a case, you might want to call select() or poll() before restoring the interrupted gnutls function.

This function's output is unreliable if you are using the same
session in different threads, for sending and receiving.


0 if interrupted while trying to read data, or 1 while trying to write data.
