     BIO_s_fd() returns the file descriptor BIO method. This is a
     wrapper round the platforms file descriptor routines such as
     read() and write().

     BIO_read() and BIO_write() read or write the underlying
     descriptor. BIO_puts() is supported but BIO_gets() is not.

     If the close flag is set then then close() is called on the
     underlying file descriptor when the BIO is freed.

     BIO_reset() attempts to change the file pointer to the start
     of file using lseek(fd, 0, 0).

     BIO_seek() sets the file pointer to position ofs from start
     of file using lseek(fd, ofs, 0).

     BIO_tell() returns the current file position by calling
     lseek(fd, 0, 1).

     BIO_set_fd() sets the file descriptor of BIO b to fd and the
     close flag to c.

     BIO_get_fd() places the file descriptor in c if it is not
     NULL, it also returns the file descriptor. If c is not NULL
     it should be of type (int *).

     BIO_new_fd() returns a file descriptor BIO using fd and


     The behaviour of BIO_read() and BIO_write() depends on the
     behavior of the platforms read() and write() calls on the
     descriptor. If the underlying file descriptor is in a non
     blocking mode then the BIO will behave in the manner
     described in the BIO_read(3) and BIO_should_retry(3) manual

     File descriptor BIOs should not be used for socket I/O. Use
     socket BIOs instead.


     BIO_s_fd() returns the file descriptor BIO method.

     BIO_reset() returns zero for success and -1 if an error
     occurred. BIO_seek() and BIO_tell() return the current file
     position or -1 is an error occurred. These values reflect
     the underlying lseek() behaviour.

     BIO_set_fd() always returns 1.

     BIO_get_fd() returns the file descriptor or -1 if the BIO
     has not been initialized.

     BIO_new_fd() returns the newly allocated BIO or NULL is an
     error occurred.


     This is a file descriptor BIO version of "Hello World":

      BIO *out;
      out = BIO_new_fd(fileno(stdout), BIO_NOCLOSE);
      BIO_printf(out, "Hello World\n");
