+Otherwise they behave in a similar way to d2i_X509() and i2d_X509()
 described in the L<d2i_X509(3)|d2i_X509(3)> manual page.
+X509_ALGOR_dup() returns a copy of B<alg>.
+X509_ALGOR_set0() sets the algorithm OID of B<alg> to B<aobj> and the
+associated parameter type to B<ptype> with value B<pval>. If B<ptype> is
+B<V_ASN1_UNDEF> the parameter is omitted, otherwise B<ptype> and B<pval> have
+the same meaning as the B<type> and B<value> parameters to ASN1_TYPE_set().
+All the supplied parameters are used internally so must B<NOT> be freed after
+this call.
+X509_ALGOR_get0() is the inverse of X509_ALGOR_set0(): it returns the
+algorithm OID in B<*paobj> and the associated parameter in B<*pptype>
+and B<*ppval> from the B<AlgorithmIdentifier> B<alg>.
+X509_ALGOR_set_md() sets the B<AlgorithmIdentifier> B<alg> to appropriate
+values for the message digest B<md>.
+X509_ALGOR_cmp() compares B<a> and B<b> and returns 0 if they have identical
+encodings and non-zero otherwise.
