NAME

SSL_pending - obtain number of readable bytes buffered in an SSL object  

SYNOPSIS

 #include <openssl/ssl.h>

 int SSL_pending(const SSL *ssl);

 

DESCRIPTION

SSL_pending() returns the number of bytes which are available inside ssl for immediate read.  

NOTES

Data are received in blocks from the peer. Therefore data can be buffered inside ssl and are ready for immediate retrieval with SSL_read(3).  

RETURN VALUES

The number of bytes pending is returned.  

BUGS

SSL_pending() takes into account only bytes from the TLS/SSL record that is currently being processed (if any). If the SSL object's read_ahead flag is set, additional protocol bytes may have been read containing more TLS/SSL records; these are ignored by SSL_pending().

Up to OpenSSL 0.9.6, SSL_pending() does not check if the record type of pending data is application data.
