PKCS7_SET_CONTENT(3)   FreeBSD Library Functions Manual	  PKCS7_SET_CONTENT(3)

NAME
     PKCS7_set_content,	PKCS7_content_new -- set the nested contentInfo	in a
     PKCS#7 structure

SYNOPSIS
     #include <openssl/pkcs7.h>

     int
     PKCS7_set_content(PKCS7 *outer, PKCS7 *inner);

     int
     PKCS7_content_new(PKCS7 *outer, int inner_type);

DESCRIPTION
     If	the contentType	of the outer PKCS7 structure is	SignedData or
     DigestedData, PKCS7_set_content() sets the	contentInfo field of the
     content field of outer to inner, without copying inner.  If there was
     previous contentInfo, it is freed rather than overwritten.	 The rest of
     the internal state	of outer and of	its content remains unchanged.

     PKCS7_content_new() is similar except that	it first allocates and ini-
     tializes a	new, empty inner object	of the given inner_type	using
     PKCS7_new(3) and PKCS7_set_type(3).  The inner_type can be	any of the
     NIDs listed in the	PKCS7_set_type(3) manual.

RETURN VALUES
     These functions return 1 on success or 0 on failure.  They	fail if	the
     contentType of outer is unsupported.  PKCS7_content_new() can also	fail
     when memory is exhausted.	In case	of failure, outer remains unchanged.

STANDARDS
     RFC 2315: PKCS #7:	Cryptographic Message Syntax Version 1.5

HISTORY
     These functions first appeared in SSLeay 0.8.1 and	have been available
     since OpenBSD 2.4.

CAVEATS
     Despite the function names, these functions do not	set the	content	field
     of	outer, but only	the contentInfo	field inside it.  The rest of the
     content remains unchanged.
