NAME
       gnutls_record_set_max_size - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       ssize_t gnutls_record_set_max_size(gnutls_session_t session, size_t
       size);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t type.

       size_t size is the new size

DESCRIPTION
       This function sets the maximum amount of plaintext sent and received in a
       record in this connection.

       Prior to 3.6.4, this function was implemented using a TLS extension
       called 'max fragment length', which limits the acceptable values to
       512(=2^9), 1024(=2^10), 2048(=2^11) and 4096(=2^12).

       Since 3.6.4, the limit is also negotiated through a new TLS extension
       called 'record size limit', which doesn't have the limitation, as long as
       the value ranges between 512 and 16384.  Note that while the 'record size
       limit' extension is preferred, not all TLS implementations use or even
       understand the extension.

DEPRECATED
       if the client can assume that the 'record size limit' extension is
       supported by the server, we recommend using
       gnutls_record_set_max_recv_size() instead.

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