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 current session to null. Every session must
       be initialized before use, so internal structures can be allocated.  This
       function allocates structures which can only be free'd by calling
       gnutls_deinit().  Returns GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) on success.

        flags can be one of GNUTLS_CLIENT, GNUTLS_SERVER, GNUTLS_DATAGRAM,
       GNUTLS_NONBLOCK or GNUTLS_NOSIGNAL (since 3.4.2).

       The flag GNUTLS_NO_REPLAY_PROTECTION will disable any replay protection
       in DTLS mode. That must only used when replay protection is achieved
       using other means.

       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.
