ASN1_OBJECT_NEW(3)		    OpenSSL		    ASN1_OBJECT_NEW(3)

NAME
       ASN1_OBJECT_new,	ASN1_OBJECT_free - object allocation functions

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/asn1.h>

	ASN1_OBJECT *ASN1_OBJECT_new(void);
	void ASN1_OBJECT_free(ASN1_OBJECT *a);

DESCRIPTION
       The ASN1_OBJECT allocation routines, allocate and free an ASN1_OBJECT
       structure, which	represents an ASN1 OBJECT IDENTIFIER.

       ASN1_OBJECT_new() allocates and initializes an ASN1_OBJECT structure.

       ASN1_OBJECT_free() frees	up the ASN1_OBJECT structure a.	 If a is NULL,
       nothing is done.

NOTES
       Although	ASN1_OBJECT_new() allocates a new ASN1_OBJECT structure	it is
       almost never used in applications. The ASN1 object utility functions
       such as OBJ_nid2obj() are used instead.

RETURN VALUES
       If the allocation fails,	ASN1_OBJECT_new() returns NULL and sets	an
       error code that can be obtained by ERR_get_error(3).  Otherwise it
       returns a pointer to the	newly allocated	structure.

       ASN1_OBJECT_free() returns no value.
