       gnutls_alert_send - send an alert message to the peer


       #include <gnutls/gnutls.h>

       int  gnutls_alert_send(gnutls_session_t  session,  gnutls_alert_level_t
       level, gnutls_alert_description_t desc);


       gnutls_session_t session
                   is a gnutls_session_t structure.

       gnutls_alert_level_t level
                   is the level of the alert

       gnutls_alert_description_t desc
                   is the alert description


       This function will send an alert to the peer in order to inform him  of
       something  important  (eg.  his Certificate could not be verified).  If
       the alert level is Fatal  then  the  peer  is  expected  to  close  the
       connection, otherwise he may ignore the alert and continue.

       The error code of the underlying record send function will be returned,
       so you may also receive GNUTLS_E_INTERRUPTED or GNUTLS_E_AGAIN as well.


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