SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

        #include <openssl/bio.h>

        BIO_METHOD *   BIO_s_fd(void);

        #define BIO_set_fd(b,fd,c)     BIO_int_ctrl(b,BIO_C_SET_FD,c,fd)
        #define BIO_get_fd(b,c)        BIO_ctrl(b,BIO_C_GET_FD,0,(char *)c)

        BIO *BIO_new_fd(int fd, int close_flag);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       BIO_s_fd() returns the file descriptor BIO method. This is
       a wrapper round the platforms file descriptor routines
       such as read() and write().

       BIO_read() and BIO_write() read or write the underlying
       descriptor.  BIO_puts() is supported but BIO_gets() is

       If the close flag is set then then close() is called on
       the underlying file descriptor when the BIO is freed.

       BIO_reset() attempts to change the file pointer to the
       start of file using lseek(fd, 0, 0).

       BIO_seek() sets the file pointer to position ofs from
       start of file using lseek(fd, ofs, 0).

       BIO_tell() returns the current file position by calling
       lseek(fd, 0, 1).

       BIO_set_fd() sets the file descriptor of BIO b to fd and
       the close flag to c.

       BIO_get_fd() places the file descriptor in c if it is not
       NULL, it also returns the file descriptor. If c is not
       NULL it should be of type (int *).

       BIO_new_fd() returns a file descriptor BIO using fd and

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The behaviour of BIO_read() and BIO_write() depends on the
       behavior of the platforms read() and write() calls on the
       descriptor. If the underlying file descriptor is in a non
       blocking mode then the BIO will behave in the manner
       described in the BIO_read(3) and BIO_should_retry(3) manual

       File descriptor BIOs should not be used for socket I/O.
       Use socket BIOs instead.

RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]

       BIO_s_fd() returns the file descriptor BIO method.

       BIO_reset() returns zero for success and -1 if an error
       occurred.  BIO_seek() and BIO_tell() return the current
       file position or -1 is an error occurred. These values
       reflect the underlying lseek() behaviour.

       BIO_set_fd() always returns 1.

       BIO_get_fd() returns the file descriptor or -1 if the BIO
       has not been initialized.

       BIO_new_fd() returns the newly allocated BIO or NULL is an
       error occurred.

EXAMPLE    [Toc]    [Back]

       This is a file descriptor BIO version of "Hello World":

        BIO *out;
        out = BIO_new_fd(fileno(stdout), BIO_NOCLOSE);
        BIO_printf(out, "Hello World\n");
