DESCRIPTION
       ldns_key_new() Creates a new empty key structure
              Returns a new ldns_key * structure

       ldns_key_new_frm_algorithm() Creates a new key based on the algorithm

              a: The algorithm to use
              size: the number of bytes for the keysize
              Returns a new ldns_key structure with the key

       ldns_key_new_frm_fp() Creates a new priv key based on the contents of
              the file pointed by fp.

              The file should be in Private-key-format v1.x.

              k: the new ldns_key structure
              fp: the file pointer to use
              Returns an error or LDNS_STATUS_OK

       ldns_key_new_frm_fp_l() Creates a new private key based on the contents
              of the file pointed by fp

              The file should be in Private-key-format v1.x.

              k: the new ldns_key structure
              fp: the file pointer to use
              line_nr: pointer to an integer containing the current line
              number (for debugging purposes)
              Returns an error or LDNS_STATUS_OK

       ldns_key_new_frm_fp_rsa() frm_fp helper function. This function parses
              the remainder of the (RSA) priv. key file generated from bind9
              fp: the file to parse
              Returns NULL on failure otherwise a RSA structure

       ldns_key_new_frm_fp_rsa_l() frm_fp helper function. This function
              parses the remainder of the (RSA) priv. key file generated from
              bind9
              fp: the file to parse
              line_nr: pointer to an integer containing the current line
              number (for debugging purposes)
              Returns NULL on failure otherwise a RSA structure

       ldns_key_new_frm_fp_dsa() frm_fp helper function. This function parses
              the remainder of the (DSA) priv. key file
              fp: the file to parse
              Returns NULL on failure otherwise a RSA structure

       ldns_key_new_frm_fp_dsa_l() frm_fp helper function. This function
              parses the remainder of the (DSA) priv. key file
              fp: the file to parse
              line_nr: pointer to an integer containing the current line
              number (for debugging purposes)
              Returns NULL on failure otherwise a RSA structure
