i2d_PKCS7_bio_stream — output PKCS7 structure in BER format.

Synopsis

#include <openssl/pkcs7.h>
int i2d_PKCS7_bio_stream(BIO *out, PKCS7 *p7, BIO *data, int flags);

Description

i2d_PKCS7_bio_stream() outputs a PKCS7 structure in BER format.

It is otherwise identical to the function SMIME_write_PKCS7().

Notes

This function is effectively a version of the d2i_PKCS7_bio() supporting streaming.

Bugs

The prefix "i2d" is arguably wrong because the function outputs BER format.

Return Values

i2d_PKCS7_bio_stream() returns 1 for success or 0 for failure.
