       gnutls_dh_params_generate2 - API function

       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int gnutls_dh_params_generate2(gnutls_dh_params_t dparams, unsigned int

       gnutls_dh_params_t dparams
		   Is the structure that the DH parameters will be stored

       unsigned int bits
		   is the prime's number of bits

       This function will generate a new pair of prime and generator  for  use
       in  the	Diffie-Hellman	key exchange. The new parameters will be allo‐
       cated using gnutls_malloc() and	will  be  stored  in  the  appropriate
       datum.  This function is normally slow.

       Do     not     set     the     number	of    bits    directly,	   use
       gnutls_sec_param_to_pk_bits() to get bits for GNUTLS_PK_DSA.  Also note
       that  the  DH parameters are only useful to servers.  Since clients use
       the parameters sent by the server, it's of  no  use  to	call  this  in
       client side.

       On  success,  GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS  (0)  is	returned, otherwise a negative
       error code is returned.
