       asn1_expand_octet_string - API function


       #include <libtasn1.h>

       asn1_retCode  asn1_expand_octet_string(ASN1_TYPE definitions, ASN1_TYPE
       * element, const char * octetName, const char * objectName);


       ASN1_TYPE definitions
                   ASN1 definitions

       ASN1_TYPE * element
                   pointer to an ASN1 structure

       const char * octetName
                   name of the OCTECT STRING field to expand.

       const char * objectName
                   name of the OBJECT IDENTIFIER field to use  to  define  the
                   type for expansion.


       Expands  an  "OCTET  STRING"  element of a structure created from a DER
       decoding process (the asn1_der_decoding() function).  The type used for
       expansion is the first one following the definition of the actual value
       of the OBJECT IDENTIFIER indicated by OBJECTNAME.


       ASN1_SUCCESS if substitution OK, ASN1_ELEMENT_NOT_FOUND  if  objectName
       or  octetName  are  not  correct,  ASN1_VALUE_NOT_VALID  if  it  wasn’t
       possible to find the  type  to  use  for  expansion,  or  other  errors
       depending on DER decoding.
