NAME
       gnutls_init - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_init(gnutls_session_t * session, unsigned int flags);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_session_t * session
                   is a pointer to a gnutls_session_t type.

       unsigned int flags
                   indicate if this session is to be used for server or client.

DESCRIPTION
       This function initializes the provided session. Every session must be
       initialized before use, and must be deinitialized after used by calling
       gnutls_deinit().

        flags can be any combination of flags from gnutls_init_flags_t.

       Note that since version 3.1.2 this function enables some common TLS
       extensions such as session tickets and OCSP certificate status request in
       client side by default. To prevent that use the GNUTLS_NO_EXTENSIONS
       flag.

RETURNS
       GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS on success, or an error code.
