       gnutls_bye - terminate the current TLS/SSL connection.

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_bye(gnutls_session_t session, gnutls_close_request_t how);

       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t structure.

       gnutls_close_request_t how
                   is an integer

       Terminates the current TLS/SSL connection. The connection should have
       been initiated using gnutls_handshake().  how should be one of

       In case of GNUTLS_SHUT_RDWR then the TLS connection gets terminated and
       further receives and sends will be disallowed.  If the return value is
       zero you may continue using the connection.  GNUTLS_SHUT_RDWR actually
       sends an alert containing a close request and waits for the peer to
       reply with the same message.

       In case of GNUTLS_SHUT_WR then the TLS connection gets terminated and
       further sends will be disallowed. In order to reuse the connection you
       should wait for an EOF from the peer.  GNUTLS_SHUT_WR sends an alert
       containing a close request.

       Note that not all implementations will properly terminate a TLS
       connection.  Some of them, usually for performance reasons, will
       terminate only the underlying transport layer, thus causing a
       transmission error to the peer.  This error cannot be distinguished
       from a malicious party prematurely terminating the session, thus this
       behavior is not recommended.

       This function may also return GNUTLS_E_AGAIN or GNUTLS_E_INTERRUPTED;
       cf.  gnutls_record_get_direction().

       GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, or an error code, see function
       documentation for entire semantics.
