SSL_state_string, SSL_state_string_long - get textual
description of state of an SSL object
char *SSL_state_string(SSL *ssl);
char *SSL_state_string_long(SSL *ssl);
SSL_state_string() returns a 6 letter string indicating
the current state of the SSL object ssl.
SSL_state_string_long() returns a string indicating the
current state of the SSL object ssl.
During its use, an SSL objects passes several states. The
state is internally maintained. Querying the state information
is not very informative before or when a connection
has been established. It however can be of significant
interest during the handshake.
When using non-blocking sockets, the function call performing
the handshake may return with SSL_ERROR_WANT_READ
or SSL_ERROR_WANT_WRITE condition, so that
SSL_state_string[_long]() may be called.
For both blocking or non-blocking sockets, the details
state information can be used within the info_callback
function set with the SSL_set_info_callback() call.
