const char *
pam_strerror(const pam_handle_t *pamh, int error_number);
The pam_strerror() function returns a pointer to a string containing a textual description of the error indicated by the error_number argu-
ment. The pamh argument is ignored. For compatibility with other implementations, it should be either a valid PAM handle returned by a pre-
vious call to pam_start(3), or NULL.
The pam_strerror() function returns NULL on failure.
