DESCRIPTION

     The BIO_find_type() searches for a BIO of a given type in a
     chain, starting at BIO b. If type is a specific type (such
     as BIO_TYPE_MEM) then a search is made for a BIO of that
     type. If type is a general type (such as
     BIO_TYPE_SOURCE_SINK) then the next matching BIO of the
     given general type is searched for. BIO_find_type() returns
     the next matching BIO or NULL if none is found.

     Note: not all the BIO_TYPE_* types above have corresponding
     BIO implementations.

     BIO_next() returns the next BIO in a chain. It can be used
     to traverse all BIOs in a chain or used in conjunction with
     BIO_find_type() to find all BIOs of a certain type.

BIO_FIND_TYPE(3)             OpenSSL             BIO_FIND_TYPE(3)

     BIO_method_type() returns the type of a BIO.

RETURN VALUES

     BIO_find_type() returns a matching BIO or NULL for no match.

     BIO_next() returns the next BIO in a chain.

     BIO_method_type() returns the type of the BIO b.

NOTES

     BIO_next() was added to OpenSSL 0.9.6 to provide a 'clean'
     way to traverse a BIO chain or find multiple matches using
     BIO_find_type(). Previous versions had to use:

      next = bio->next_bio;

BUGS

     BIO_find_type() in OpenSSL 0.9.5a and earlier could not be
     safely passed a NULL pointer for the b argument.

EXAMPLE

     Traverse a chain looking for digest BIOs:

      BIO *btmp;
      btmp = in_bio; /* in_bio is chain to search through */

      do {
             btmp = BIO_find_type(btmp, BIO_TYPE_MD);
             if(btmp == NULL) break; /* Not found */
             /* btmp is a digest BIO, do something with it ...*/
             ...

             btmp = BIO_next(btmp);
      } while(btmp);
