i2d_ASN1_OBJECT — decode and
encode ASN.1 object identifiers
**val_out, unsigned char **der_in,
*val_in, unsigned char **der_out);
These functions decode and encode ASN.1 object identifiers. For details about the semantics, examples, caveats, and bugs, see ASN1_item_d2i(3).
The objects returned from
d2i_ASN1_OBJECT() and the data contained in them are
always marked as dynamically allocated, so when they are no longer needed,
ASN1_OBJECT_free(3) can be
called on them.
If reusing an existing object is attempted but the
*val_out passed in points to an object that is not
marked as dynamically allocated, then the existing object is left untouched
d2i_ASN1_OBJECT() behaves as if
*val_out would have been
A new object is allocated and a pointer to it is both stored in
*val_out and returned.
d2i_ASN1_OBJECT() returns an
ASN1_OBJECT object or
an error occurs.
i2d_ASN1_OBJECT() returns the number of
bytes successfully encoded or a value <= 0 if an error occurs.
i2d_ASN1_OBJECT() first appeared in SSLeay 0.5.1 and
have been available since OpenBSD 2.4.
d2i_ASN1_OBJECT() never sets the long and
short names of the object, not even if the object identifier matches one
that is built into the library. To find the names of an object identifier
parsed from DER or BER input, call
OBJ_obj2nid(3) on the returned
object, and then OBJ_nid2sn(3) and
OBJ_nid2ln(3) on the result.
When reusing a dynamically allocated object that contains dynamically allocated names, the old names are not freed and the memory containing them is leaked.
