 pam_strerror(3)                                             pam_strerror(3)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      pam_strerror - get PAM error message string

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      cc [ flag ... ] file ...  -lpam [ library ... ]

      #include <security/pam_appl.h>

      const char *pam_strerror(pam_handle_t *pamh, int errnum);

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      pam_strerror() maps the PAM error number in errnum to a PAM error
      message string, and returns a pointer to that string.  The application
      should not free or modify the string returned.

      The pamh argument is the PAM handle obtained by a prior call to
      pam_start().  If pam_start() returns an error, a NULL PAM handle
      should be passed.

 APPLICATION USAGE    [Toc]    [Back]
      Refer to pam(3) for information on thread-safety of PAM interfaces.

 ERRORS    [Toc]    [Back]
      pam_strerror() returns NULL if errnum is out-of-range.

 SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]
      pam(3), pam_start(3).
