BIO_int_ctrl() are BIO "control" operations taking arguments of various types. These functions are not normally called directly - various macros are used instead. The standard macros are described below. Macros specific to a particular type of BIO are described in the specific BIO's manual page as well as any special features of the standard calls.
BIO_reset() typically resets a BIO to some initial state. In the case of file related BIOs, for example, it rewinds the file pointer to the start of the file.
BIO_seek() resets a file related BIO's (that is file descriptor and FILE BIOs) file position pointer to ofs bytes from start of file.
BIO_tell() returns the current file position of a file related BIO.
BIO_flush() normally writes out any internally buffered data. In some cases it is used to signal EOF and that no more data will be written.
BIO_eof() returns 1 if the BIO has read EOF. The precise meaning of "EOF" varies according to the BIO type.
BIO_set_close() sets the BIO b close flag to flag. flag can take the value
BIO_CLOSEis used in a source/sink BIO to indicate that the underlying I/O stream should be closed when the BIO is freed.
BIO_get_close() returns the BIO's close flag.
BIO_ctrl_wpending() return the number of pending characters in the BIO's read and write buffers. Not all BIOs support these calls.
BIO_ctrl_wpending() return a size_t type and are functions.
BIO_wpending() are macros which call
BIO_reset() normally returns 1 for success and 0 or -1 for failure. File BIOs are an exception, returning 0 for success and -1 for failure.
BIO_tell() both return the current file position on success and -1 for failure, except file BIOs which for
BIO_seek() always return 0 for success and -1 for failure.
BIO_flush() returns 1 for success and 0 or -1 for failure.
BIO_eof() returns 1 if EOF has been reached or 0 otherwise.
BIO_set_close() always returns 1.
BIO_get_close() returns the close flag value
BIO_ctrl_wpending() return the amount of pending data.
BIO_flush() may return 0 or -1 indicating that the call should be retried later in a similar manner to BIO_write(3). The BIO_should_retry(3) call should be used and appropriate action taken if the call fails. The return values of
BIO_wpending() may not reliably determine the amount of pending data in all cases. For example in the case of a file BIO some data may be available in the FILE structure's internal buffers but it is not possible to determine this in a portable way. For other types of BIO they may not be supported. If they do not internally handle a particular
BIO_ctrl() operation, filter BIOs usually pass the operation to the next BIO in the chain. This often means there is no need to locate the required BIO for a particular operation: it can be called on a chain and it will be automatically passed to the relevant BIO. However this can cause unexpected results. For example no current filter BIOs implement
BIO_seek(), but this may still succeed if the chain ends in a FILE or file descriptor BIO. Source/sink BIOs return a 0 if they do not recognize the
BIO_ctrl() operation. BIO_meth_new(3), BIO_new(3)
