        int DSA_size(const DSA *dsa(1,3));

DESCRIPTION
       This function returns the size of an ASN.1 encoded DSA signature in(1,8)
       bytes. It can be used to determine how much memory must be allocated
       for a DSA signature.

       dsa->q must not be NULL.

RETURN VALUE
       The size in(1,8) bytes.

SEE ALSO
