BIO_S_SOCKET(3)			    OpenSSL		       BIO_S_SOCKET(3)

NAME
       BIO_s_socket, BIO_new_socket - socket BIO

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/bio.h>

	const BIO_METHOD *BIO_s_socket(void);

	BIO *BIO_new_socket(int	sock, int close_flag);

DESCRIPTION
       BIO_s_socket() returns the socket BIO method. This is a wrapper round
       the platform's socket routines.

       BIO_read_ex() and BIO_write_ex()	read or	write the underlying socket.
       BIO_puts() is supported but BIO_gets() is not.

       If the close flag is set	then the socket	is shut	down and closed	when
       the BIO is freed.

       BIO_new_socket()	returns	a socket BIO using sock	and close_flag.

NOTES
       Socket BIOs also	support	any relevant functionality of file descriptor
       BIOs.

       The reason for having separate file descriptor and socket BIOs is that
       on some platforms sockets are not file descriptors and use distinct I/O
       routines, Windows is one	such platform. Any code	mixing the two will
       not work	on all platforms.

RETURN VALUES
       BIO_s_socket() returns the socket BIO method.

       BIO_new_socket()	returns	the newly allocated BIO	or NULL	is an error
       occurred.
