=head1 DESCRIPTION

X509v3_get_ext_count() retrieves the number of extensions in B<x>.

X509v3_get_ext() retrieves extension B<loc> from B<x>. The index B<loc>
can take any value from B<0> to X509_get_ext_count(x) - 1. The returned
extension is an internal pointer which B<must not> be freed up by the
application.

X509v3_get_ext_by_NID() and X509v3_get_ext_by_OBJ() look for an extension
with B<nid> or B<obj> from extension stack B<x>. The search starts from the
extension after B<lastpos> or from the beginning if <lastpos> is B<-1>. If
the extension is found its index is returned otherwise B<-1> is returned.

X509v3_get_ext_by_critical() is similar to X509v3_get_ext_by_NID() except it
looks for an extension of criticality B<crit>. A zero value for B<crit>
looks for a non-critical extension a non-zero value looks for a critical
extension.

X509v3_delete_ext() deletes the extension with index B<loc> from B<x>. The
deleted extension is returned and must be freed by the caller. If B<loc>
is in invalid index value B<NULL> is returned.

X509v3_add_ext() adds extension B<ex> to stack B<*x> at position B<loc>. If
B<loc> is B<-1> the new extension is added to the end. If B<*x> is B<NULL>
a new stack will be allocated. The passed extension B<ex> is duplicated
internally so it must be freed after use.

X509_get_ext_count(), X509_get_ext(), X509_get_ext_by_NID(),
X509_get_ext_by_OBJ(), X509_get_ext_by_critical(), X509_delete_ext()
and X509_add_ext() operate on the extensions of certificate B<x> they are
otherwise identical to the X509v3 functions.

X509_CRL_get_ext_count(), X509_CRL_get_ext(), X509_CRL_get_ext_by_NID(),
X509_CRL_get_ext_by_OBJ(), X509_CRL_get_ext_by_critical(),
X509_CRL_delete_ext() and X509_CRL_add_ext() operate on the extensions of
CRL B<x> they are otherwise identical to the X509v3 functions.

X509_REVOKED_get_ext_count(), X509_REVOKED_get_ext(),
X509_REVOKED_get_ext_by_NID(), X509_REVOKED_get_ext_by_OBJ(),
X509_REVOKED_get_ext_by_critical(), X509_REVOKED_delete_ext() and
X509_REVOKED_add_ext() operate on the extensions of CRL entry B<x>
they are otherwise identical to the X509v3 functions.

=head1 NOTES

These functions are used to examine stacks of extensions directly. Many
applications will want to parse or encode and add an extension: they should
use the extension encode and decode functions instead such as
X509_add1_ext_i2d() and X509_get_ext_d2i().

Extension indices start from zero, so a zero index return value is B<not> an
error. These search functions start from the extension B<after> the B<lastpos>
parameter so it should initially be set to B<-1>, if it is set to zero the
initial extension will not be checked.

=head1 RETURN VALUES

X509v3_get_ext_count() returns the extension count.

X509v3_get_ext(), X509v3_delete_ext() and X509_delete_ext() return an
B<X509_EXTENSION> pointer or B<NULL> if an error occurs.

X509v3_get_ext_by_NID() X509v3_get_ext_by_OBJ() and
X509v3_get_ext_by_critical() return the an extension index or B<-1> if an
error occurs.

X509v3_add_ext() returns a stack of extensions or B<NULL> on error.

X509_add_ext() returns 1 on success and 0 on error.
