NAME
audit_open - Open a audit netlink socket connection
SYNOPSIS
#include <libaudit.h> int audit_open (void);
DESCRIPTION

RETURN VALUE
Returns -1 if an error occurs; otherwise, the return value is a descriptor referencing the socket.
ERRORS
The audit_open() function may fail and set errno for any of the errors specified for the socket(2) and fcntl(2) routines.
SEE ALSO
