man page for SSL_CTX_set_info_callback gives incorrect signature

Bug #1147526 reported by Jean-Paul Calderone
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
openssl (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The man page give these signatures:

        void SSL_CTX_set_info_callback(SSL_CTX *ctx, void (*callback)());
        void (*SSL_CTX_get_info_callback(const SSL_CTX *ctx))();

        void SSL_set_info_callback(SSL *ssl, void (*callback)());
        void (*SSL_get_info_callback(const SSL *ssl))();

but the correct signatures are actually:

    void SSL_CTX_set_info_callback(SSL_CTX *ctx, void (*cb)(const SSL *ssl,int type,int val));
    void (*SSL_CTX_get_info_callback(SSL_CTX *ctx))(const SSL *ssl,int type,int val);

    void SSL_set_info_callback(SSL *ssl, void (*cb)(const SSL *ssl,int type,int val));
    void (*SSL_get_info_callback(const SSL *ssl))(const SSL *ssl,int type,int val);

Copying this from 1297025 (from the same reporter):

The man page for SSL_CTX_set_session_cache_mode gives its signature as:

    long SSL_CTX_set_session_cache_mode(SSL_CTX ctx, long mode);

The correct signature is:

    long SSL_CTX_set_session_cache_mode(SSL_CTX *ctx, long mode);

The same goes for SSL_CTX_get_session_cache_mode, documented in the same manual page.

Same bug in the SSL_CTX_add_extra_chain_cert manual page.
