=head1 NAME
ASN1_item_new_ex, ASN1_item_new
- create new ASN.1 values
#include <openssl/asn1.h>
ASN1_VALUE *ASN1_item_new_ex(const ASN1_ITEM *it, OSSL_LIB_CTX *libctx,
const char *propq);
ASN1_VALUE *ASN1_item_new(const ASN1_ITEM *it);
ASN1_item_new_ex() creates a new B<ASN1_VALUE> structure based on the
B<ASN1_ITEM> template given in the I<it> parameter. If any algorithm fetches are
required during the process then they will use the B<OSSL_LIB_CTX> provided in
the I<libctx> parameter and the property query string in I<propq>. See
L<crypto(7)/ALGORITHM FETCHING> for more information about algorithm fetching.
ASN1_item_new() is the same as ASN1_item_new_ex() except that the default
B<OSSL_LIB_CTX> is used (i.e. NULL) and with a NULL property query string.
ASN1_item_new_ex() and ASN1_item_new() return a pointer to the newly created
B<ASN1_VALUE> or NULL on error.
=head1 HISTORY
The function ASN1_item_new_ex() was added in OpenSSL 3.0.
