14 =head1 DESCRIPTION
15
16 The X509 ASN1 allocation routines, allocate and free an
17 X509 structure, which represents an X509 certificate.
18
19 X509_new() allocates and initializes a X509 structure.
20
21 X509_free() frees up the B<X509> structure B<a>.
22 If B<a> is NULL nothing is done.
23
24 =head1 RETURN VALUES
25
26 If the allocation fails, X509_new() returns B<NULL> and sets an error
27 code that can be obtained by L<ERR_get_error(3)>.
28 Otherwise it returns a pointer to the newly allocated structure.
29
30 X509_free() returns no value.
