DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The BIO_find_type() searches for a BIO of a given type in
       a chain, starting at BIO b. If type is a specific type
       (such as BIO_TYPE_MEM) then a search is made for a BIO of
       that type. If type is a general type (such as
       BIO_TYPE_SOURCE_SINK) then the next matching BIO of the
       given general type is searched for. BIO_find_type()
       returns the next matching BIO or NULL if none is found.

       Note: not all the BIO_TYPE_* types above have corresponding
 BIO implementations.

       BIO_next() returns the next BIO in a chain. It can be used
       to traverse all BIOs in a chain or used in conjunction
       with BIO_find_type() to find all BIOs of a certain type.

       BIO_method_type() returns the type of a BIO.

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

       BIO_find_type() returns a matching BIO or NULL for no

       BIO_next() returns the next BIO in a chain.

       BIO_method_type() returns the type of the BIO b.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       BIO_next() was added to OpenSSL 0.9.6 to provide a 'clean'
       way to traverse a BIO chain or find multiple matches using
       BIO_find_type(). Previous versions had to use:

        next = bio->next_bio;

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

       BIO_find_type() in OpenSSL 0.9.5a and earlier could not be
       safely passed a NULL pointer for the b argument.

EXAMPLE    [Toc]    [Back]

       Traverse a chain looking for digest BIOs:

        BIO *btmp;
        btmp = in_bio; /* in_bio is chain to search through */

        do {
               btmp = BIO_find_type(btmp, BIO_TYPE_MD);
               if(btmp == NULL) break; /* Not found */
               /* btmp is a digest BIO, do something with it ...*/

               btmp = BIO_next(btmp);
        } while(btmp);
