NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for pw_getconf (netbsd section 3)

PW_GETCONF(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 		    PW_GETCONF(3)

NAME
     pw_getconf, pw_getpwconf -- password encryption configuration access function

LIBRARY
     System Utilities Library (libutil, -lutil)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <util.h>

     void
     pw_getconf(char *data, size_t len, const char *key, const char *option);

     void
     pw_getpwconf(char *data, size_t len, const struct passwd *pwd, const char *option);

DESCRIPTION
     The pw_getconf() function reads /etc/passwd.conf and retrieves the value of the option spec-
     ified by option from the section given by key.  If no suitable entry is found for the key an
     empty string will be returned in data.

     To retrieve default values the key default can be used.  In this case, if /etc/passwd.conf
     does not exist or does not contain a default section, the built-in defaults will be
     returned.	They are as follows:

	   option	  data
	   ypcipher	  old
	   localcipher	  old

     An empty string is returned for all errors.

     pw_getpwconf() returns the value for the option specified for the particular user specified
     in pwd.  If that option is not found, then it tries to find the option in the primary group
     of that user, and if that fails, then it returns the default entry.

FILES
     /etc/passwd.conf

ERRORS
     pw_getconf() and pw_getpwconf() will fail if:

     [ENOENT]		There is no option named option in the specified key.

     [ENOTDIR]		There is no key in /etc/passwd.conf named key.

SEE ALSO
     passwd(5), passwd.conf(5)

HISTORY
     The pw_getconf() function first appeared in NetBSD 1.6.
