SYNOPSIS

#include <opensc.h>

int sc_read_record(struct sc_card *card, unsigned int record,
                   unsigned char *buf, size_t buflen,
                   unsigned long flags);
                

 

DESCRIPTION

This function reads a record-structured elementary file (EF) from card. The function corresponds to the ISO 7816 READ RECORD function. Call sc_select_file() first to select the file to read from.

record specifies the ID of the record to be read, or, if flags is set to SC_RECORD_BY_REC_NR, the record number. If record is set to zero, the current record will be read.

The read data is stored in buf, which is buflen bytes long.
