pam_echo -- Echo PAM module SYNOPSIS
[service-name] module-type control-flag pam_echo [arguments] DESCRIPTION
The echo service module for PAM displays its arguments to the user, separated by spaces, using the current conversation function. If the % character occurs anywhere in the arguments to pam_echo, it is assumed to introduce one of the following escape sequences: %H The name of the host on which the client runs (PAM_RHOST). %s The current service name (PAM_SERVICE). %t The name of the controlling tty (PAM_TTY). %U The applicant's user name (PAM_RUSER). %u The target account's user name (PAM_USER). Any other two-character sequence beginning with % expands to the character following the % character. SEE ALSO
