    <dd>This is a helper function that utilizes the underlying
        commands (<strong>tls::import</strong>). It behaves
        exactly the same as the native Tcl <strong>socket</strong>
        command except that the options can include any of the
        applicable <a href="#tls::import"><strong>tls:import</strong></a>
        options.</dd>
        options with one additional option:
<blockquote>
    <dl>
        <dt><strong>-autoservername</strong> <em>bool</em></dt>
        <dd>Automatically send the -servername as the <em>host</em> argument

    <dt><a name="tls::handshake"><strong>tls::handshake</strong> <em>channel</em></a></dt>
    <dd>Forces handshake to take place, and returns 0 if
        handshake is still in progress (non-blocking), or 1 if
        the handshake was successful. If the handshake failed
        this routine will throw an error.</dd>

<p>The capabilities of this package can vary enormously based
upon how your OpenSSL library was configured and built. At the
most macro-level OpenSSL supports a &quot;no patents&quot; build,
