       gnutls_bye - API function

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_bye(gnutls_session_t session, gnutls_close_request_t how);

       gnutls_session_t session
		   is a gnutls_session_t structure.

       gnutls_close_request_t how
		   is an integer

       Terminates  the	current TLS/SSL connection. The connection should have
       been  initiated	using  gnutls_handshake().    how  should  be  one  of

       In case of GNUTLS_SHUT_RDWR the TLS session gets terminated and further
       receives and sends will be disallowed.  If the return value is zero you
       may  continue  using  the  underlying transport layer. GNUTLS_SHUT_RDWR
       sends an alert containing a close request and waits  for	 the  peer  to
       reply with the same message.

       In  case	 of GNUTLS_SHUT_WR the TLS session gets terminated and further
       sends will be disallowed. In order to reuse the connection  you	should
       wait  for an EOF from the peer.	GNUTLS_SHUT_WR sends an alert contain‐
       ing a close request.

       Note that not all implementations will properly terminate a TLS connec‐
       tion.   Some  of	 them, usually for performance reasons, will terminate
       only the	 underlying  transport	layer,	and  thus  not	distinguishing
       between	a  malicious  party prematurely terminating the connection and
       normal termination.

       This function may also return GNUTLS_E_AGAIN  or	 GNUTLS_E_INTERRUPTED;
       cf.  gnutls_record_get_direction().

       GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS	 on success, or an error code, see function documenta‐
       tion for entire semantics.
