NAME
       gnutls_alert_send - send an alert message to the peer

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_alert_send(gnutls_session_t session, gnutls_alert_level_t
       level, gnutls_alert_description_t desc);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t structure.

       gnutls_alert_level_t level
                   is the level of the alert

       gnutls_alert_description_t desc
                   is the alert description

DESCRIPTION
       This function will send an alert to the peer in order to inform him of
       something important (eg. his Certificate could not be verified).  If
       the alert level is Fatal then the peer is expected to close the
       connection, otherwise he may ignore the alert and continue.

       The error code of the underlying record send function will be returned,
       so you may also receive GNUTLS_E_INTERRUPTED or GNUTLS_E_AGAIN as well.

RETURNS
       On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise an error code
       is returned.
