DESCRIPTION

The BIO_METHOD type is a structure used for the implementation of new BIO types. It provides a set of of functions used by OpenSSL for the implementation of the various BIO capabilities. See the bio page for more information.
BIO_meth_new() creates a new BIO_METHOD structure. It should be given a unique integer type and a string that represents its name. Use BIO_get_new_index() to get the value for type.
The set of standard OpenSSL provided BIO types is provided in bio.h. Some examples include BIO_TYPE_BUFFER and BIO_TYPE_CIPHER. Filter BIOs should have a type which have the "filter" bit set ( BIO_TYPE_FILTER). Source/sink BIOs should have the "source/sink" bit set ( BIO_TYPE_SOURCE_SINK). File descriptor based BIOs (e.g. socket, fd, connect, accept etc) should additionally have the "descriptor" bit set ( BIO_TYPE_DESCRIPTOR). See the BIO_find_type page for more information.
BIO_meth_free() destroys a BIO_METHOD structure and frees up any memory associated with it.
BIO_meth_get_write() and BIO_meth_set_write() get and set the function used for writing arbitrary length data to the BIO respectively. This function will be called in response to the application calling BIO_write(). The parameters for the function have the same meaning as for BIO_write().
BIO_meth_get_read() and BIO_meth_set_read() get and set the function used for reading arbitrary length data from the BIO respectively. This function will be called in response to the application calling BIO_read(). The parameters for the function have the same meaning as for BIO_read().
BIO_meth_get_puts() and BIO_meth_set_puts() get and set the function used for writing a NULL terminated string to the BIO respectively. This function will be called in response to the application calling BIO_puts(). The parameters for the function have the same meaning as for BIO_puts().
BIO_meth_get_gets() and BIO_meth_set_gets() get and set the function typically used for reading a line of data from the BIO respectively (see the BIO_gets(3) page for more information). This function will be called in response to the application calling BIO_gets(). The parameters for the function have the same meaning as for BIO_gets().
BIO_meth_get_ctrl() and BIO_meth_set_ctrl() get and set the function used for processing ctrl messages in the BIO respectively. See the BIO_ctrl page for more information. This function will be called in response to the application calling BIO_ctrl(). The parameters for the function have the same meaning as for BIO_ctrl().
BIO_meth_get_create() and BIO_meth_set_create() get and set the function used for creating a new instance of the BIO respectively. This function will be called in response to the application calling BIO_new() and passing in a pointer to the current BIO_METHOD. The BIO_new() function will allocate the memory for the new BIO, and a pointer to this newly allocated structure will be passed as a parameter to the function.
BIO_meth_get_destroy() and BIO_meth_set_destroy() get and set the function used for destroying an instance of a BIO respectively. This function will be called in response to the application calling BIO_free(). A pointer to the BIO to be destroyed is passed as a parameter. The destroy function should be used for BIO specific clean up. The memory for the BIO itself should not be freed by this function.
BIO_meth_get_callback_ctrl() and BIO_meth_set_callback_ctrl() get and set the function used for processing callback ctrl messages in the BIO respectively. See the BIO_callback_ctrl(3) page for more information. This function will be called in response to the application calling BIO_callback_ctrl(). The parameters for the function have the same meaning as for BIO_callback_ctrl().
