       BIO_ctrl(), BIO_callback_ctrl(), BIO_ptr_ctrl() and BIO_int_ctrl() are
       BIO "control" operations taking arguments of various types.  These
       functions are not normally called directly, various macros are used
       instead. The standard macros are described below, macros specific to a
       particular type of BIO are described in the specific BIOs manual page
       as well as any special features of the standard calls.

       BIO_reset() typically resets a BIO to some initial state, in the case
       of file related BIOs for example it rewinds the file pointer to the
       start of the file.

       BIO_seek() resets a file related BIO's (that is file descriptor and
       FILE BIOs) file position pointer to ofs bytes from start of file.

       BIO_tell() returns the current file position of a file related BIO.

       BIO_flush() normally writes out any internally buffered data, in some
       cases it is used to signal EOF and that no more data will be written.

       BIO_eof() returns 1 if the BIO has read EOF, the precise meaning of
       "EOF" varies according to the BIO type.

       BIO_set_close() sets the BIO b close flag to flag. flag can take the
       value BIO_CLOSE or BIO_NOCLOSE. Typically BIO_CLOSE is used in a
       source/sink BIO to indicate that the underlying I/O stream should be
       closed when the BIO is freed.

       BIO_get_close() returns the BIOs close flag.

       BIO_pending(), BIO_ctrl_pending(), BIO_wpending() and BIO_ctrl_wpend‐
       ing() return the number of pending characters in the BIOs read and
       write buffers.  Not all BIOs support these calls. BIO_ctrl_pending()
       and BIO_ctrl_wpending() return a size_t type and are functions,
       BIO_pending() and BIO_wpending() are macros which call BIO_ctrl().

       BIO_reset() normally returns 1 for success and 0 or -1 for failure.
       File BIOs are an exception, they return 0 for success and -1 for fail‐

       BIO_seek() and BIO_tell() both return the current file position on suc‐
       cess and -1 for failure, except file BIOs which for BIO_seek() always
       return 0 for success and -1 for failure.

       BIO_flush() returns 1 for success and 0 or -1 for failure.

       BIO_eof() returns 1 if EOF has been reached 0 otherwise.

       BIO_set_close() always returns 1.

       BIO_get_close() returns the close flag value: BIO_CLOSE or BIO_NOCLOSE.

       BIO_pending(), BIO_ctrl_pending(), BIO_wpending() and BIO_ctrl_wpend‐
       ing() return the amount of pending data.

       BIO_flush(), because it can write data may return 0 or -1 indicating
       that the call should be retried later in a similar manner to
       BIO_write().  The BIO_should_retry() call should be used and appropri‐
       ate action taken is the call fails.

       The return values of BIO_pending() and BIO_wpending() may not reliably
       determine the amount of pending data in all cases. For example in the
       case of a file BIO some data may be available in the FILE structures
       internal buffers but it is not possible to determine this in a portably
       way. For other types of BIO they may not be supported.

       Filter BIOs if they do not internally handle a particular BIO_ctrl()
       operation usually pass the operation to the next BIO in the chain.
       This often means there is no need to locate the required BIO for a par‐
       ticular operation, it can be called on a chain and it will be automati‐
       cally passed to the relevant BIO. However this can cause unexpected
       results: for example no current filter BIOs implement BIO_seek(), but
       this may still succeed if the chain ends in a FILE or file descriptor

       Source/sink BIOs return an 0 if they do not recognize the BIO_ctrl()

       Some of the return values are ambiguous and care should be taken. In
       particular a return value of 0 can be returned if an operation is not
       supported, if an error occurred, if EOF has not been reached and in the
       case of BIO_seek() on a file BIO for a successful operation.
