The function () searches for a BIO of a given type in a chain, starting at BIO b. If bio_type is a specific type (such as BIO_TYPE_MEM), then a search is made for a BIO of that type. If bio_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.

() 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.

() returns the type of a BIO.

BIO_find_type() returns a matching BIO or NULL for no match.

BIO_next() returns the next BIO in a chain.

BIO_method_type() returns the type of the BIO b.

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);


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