+sk_X509_num() returns the number of elements in B<sk> or -1 if B<sk> is
+sk_X509_value() returns element B<idx> in B<sk>. Where B<idx> runs from 0
+to sk_X509_num(sk) - 1 inclusive. If B<idx> is out of range then B<NULL>
+is returned.
+sk_X509_new() allocates a new empty stack using comparison function B<cmpf>.
+If B<cmpf> is B<0> then no comparison function is used.
+sk_X509_new_null() allocates a new empty stack with no comparison function.
+sk_X509_set_cmp_func() sets the comparison function of B<sk> to B<cmpf>.
+The previous comparison function is returned or B<0> if there was
+no previous comparison function.
+sk_X509_free() frees up the B<sk> structure. It does B<not> free up any
+elements of B<sk>. After this call B<sk> is no longer valid.
+sk_X509_zero() sets the number of elements in B<sk> to zero. It does not free
+B<sk> so after this call B<sk> is still valid.
+sk_X509_pop_free() frees up all elements of B<sk> and B<sk> itself. The
+free function func() is called on each element to free it.
+sk_X509_delete() deletes element B<i> from B<sk>. It returns the deleted
+element or B<NULL> if B<i> is out of range.
+sk_X509_delete_ptr() deletes element matching B<ptr> from B<sk>. It returns
+the deleted element or B<NULL> if no element matching B<ptr> was found.
+sk_X509_insert() inserts B<ptr> into B<sk> at position B<idx>. Any existing
+elements at or after B<idx> are moved downwards. If B<idx> is out of range
+the new element is appended to B<sk>. sk_X509_insert() either returns the
+number of elements in B<sk> after the new element is inserted or zero if
+an error occured: which will happen if there is a memory allocation failure.
+sk_X509_push() appends B<ptr> to B<sk> it is equivalent to:
+ sk_X509_insert(sk, ptr, -1);
+sk_X509_unshift() inserts B<ptr> at the start of B<sk> it is equivalent to:
+ sk_X509_insert(sk, ptr, 0);
+sk_X509_pop() returns and removes the last element from B<sk>.
+sk_X509_shift() returns and removes the first element from B<sk>.
+sk_X509_set() sets element B<idx> of B<sk> to B<ptr> replacing the current
+element. The new element value is returned or B<NULL> if an error occured:
+this will only happen if B<sk> is B<NULL> or B<idx> is out of range.
+sk_X509_find() and int sk_X509_find_ex() search B<sk> using the supplied
+comparison function for an element matching B<ptr>. sk_X509_find() returns
+the index of the first matching element or B<-1> if there is no match.
+sk_X509_find_ex() returns a matching element or the nearest element that
+does not match B<ptr>. Note: if a comparison function is set then  B<sk> is
+sorted before the search which may change its order. If no comparison
+function is set then a linear search is made for a pointer matching B<ptr>
+and the stack is not reordered.
+sk_X509_sort() sorts B<sk> using the supplied comparison function.
+sk_X509_is_sorted() returns B<1> if B<sk> is sorted and B<0> otherwise.
+sk_X509_dup() returns a copy of B<sk>. Note the pointers in the copy
+are identical to the original.
+sk_X509_deep_copy() returns a new stack where each element has been copied.
+Copying is performed by the supplied copyfn() and freeing by freefn(). The
+function freefn() is only called if an error occurs.
+=head1 NOTES
+This manual page documents the functions which operate on a stack of
+B<X509> pointers. A stack can contain pointers to any structure with B<X509>
+replaced by the appropriate structure name.
+Care should be taken when accessing stacks in multi-threaded environments.
+Any operation which increases the size of a stack such as sk_X509_insert() or
+sk_push() can "grow" the size of an internal array and cause race conditions
+if the same stack is accessed in a different thread. Operations such as
+sk_find() and sk_sort() can also reorder the stack.
+Any comparison function supplied should use a metric suitable
+for use in a binary search operation. That is it should return zero, a
+positive or negative value if B<a> is equal to, greater than
+or less than B<b> respectively.
+Care should be taken when checking the return values of the functions
+sk_X509_find() and sk_X509_find_ex(). They return an index to the
+matching element. In particular B<0> indicates a matching first element.
+A failed search is indicated by a B<-1> return value.
+Applications can create and use their own stacks by placing any of the macros
+described below in a header file.
+DEFINE_STACK_OF(NAME) creates set of functions for a stack of B<NAME>. This
+will mean that type B<NAME> is stored in each stack, the type is referenced by
+STACK_OF(NAME) and each function name begins with sk_NAME_. For example:
+ NAME *sk_NAME_value(STACK_OF(NAME) *sk, int idx);
+each element is constant for example:
+ const NAME *sk_name_value(STACK_OF(NAME) *sk, int idx);
+each function uses B<FNAME>. For example:
+ STNAME *sk_FNAME_value(STACK_OF(STNAME) *sk, int idx);
+sk_X509_num() returns the number of elements in the stack or B<-1> if the
+passed stack is B<NULL>.
+sk_X509_value() returns a pointer to a stack element or B<NULL> if the
+index is out of range.
+sk_X509_new() and sk_X509_new_null() return an empty stack or B<NULL> if
+an error occurs.
+sk_X509_set_cmp_func() returns the old comparison function or B<NULL> if
+there was no old comparison function.
+sk_X509_free(), sk_X509_zero(), sk_X509_pop_free() and sk_X509_sort() do
+not return values.
+sk_X509_pop(), sk_X509_shift(), sk_X509_delete() and sk_X509_delete_ptr()
+return a pointer to the deleted element or B<NULL> on error.
+sk_X509_insert(), sk_X509_push() and sk_X509_unshift() return the total
+number of elements in the stack and 0 if an error occurred.
+sk_X509_set() returns a pointer to the replacement element or B<NULL> on
+sk_X509_find() and sk_X509_find_ex() return an index to the found element
+or B<-1> on error.
+sk_X509_is_sorted() returns B<1> if the stack is sorted and B<0> if it is
+sk_X509_dup() and sk_X509_deep_copy() return a pointer to the copy of the
+=head1 HISTORY
+Use of inline functions and application defined stacks first appeared in
+OpenSSL 1.1.0. Previous versions of OpenSSL implemented stacks as macros.
