The au_to_arg(), au_to_arg32(), and au_to_arg64() functions format the data in v into an "argument token". The n argument indicates the argument number. The text argument is a null-terminated string describing the argument. The au_to_attr() function formats the data pointed to by attr into a "vnode attribute token". The au_to_cmd() function formats the data pointed to by argv into a "command token". A command token reflects a command and its parameters as entered. For example, the pfexec(1) utility uses au_to_cmd() to record the command and arguments it reads from the command line. The au_to_data() function formats the data pointed to by p into an "arbitrary data token". The unit_print parameter determines the pre- ferred display base of the data and is one of AUP_BINARY, AUP_OCTAL, AUP_DECIMAL, AUP_HEX, or AUP_STRING. The unit_type parameter defines the basic unit of data and is one of AUR_BYTE, AUR_CHAR, AUR_SHORT, AUR_INT, or AUR_LONG. The unit_count parameter specifies the number of basic data units to be used and must be positive. The au_to_groups() function formats the array of 16 integers pointed to by groups into a "groups token". The au_to_newgroups() function (see below) should be used in place of this function. The au_to_in_addr() function formats the data pointed to by internet_addr into an "internet address token". The au_to_ipc() function formats the data in the id parameter into an "interprocess communications ID token". The au_to_iport() function formats the data pointed to by iport into an "ip port address token". The au_to_me() function collects audit information from the current process and creates a "subject token" by calling au_to_subject(). The au_to_newgroups() function formats the array of n integers pointed to by groups into a "newgroups token". This function should be used in place of au_to_groups(). The au_to_opaque() function formats the bytes bytes pointed to by data into an "opaque token". The value of size must be positive. The au_to_path() function formats the path name pointed to by path into a ``path token.'' The au_to_process() function formats an auid (audit user ID), an euid (effective user ID), an egid (effective group ID), a ruid (real user ID), a rgid (real group ID), a pid (process ID), an sid (audit session ID), and a tid (audit terminal ID containing an IPv4 IP address), into a "process token". A process token should be used when the process is the object of an action (ie. when the process is the receiver of a signal). The au_to_process_ex() function (see below) should be used in place of this function. The au_to_process_ex() function formats an auid (audit user ID), an euid (effective user ID), an egid (effective group ID), a ruid (real user ID), a rgid (real group ID), a pid (process ID), an sid (audit session ID), and a tid (audit terminal ID containing an IPv4 or IPv6 IP address), into a "process token". A process token should be used when the process is the object of an action (that is, when the process is the receiver of a signal). This function should be used in place of au_to_process(). The au_to_return(), au_to_return32(), and au_to_return64() functions format an error number number and a return value value into a "return value token". The au_to_socket() function format the data pointed to by so into a ``socket token.'' The au_to_subject() function formats an auid (audit user ID), an euid (effective user ID), an egid (effective group ID), a ruid (real user ID), an rgid (real group ID), a pid (process ID), an sid (audit session ID), an tid (audit terminal ID containing an IPv4 IP address), into a "subject token". The au_to_subject_ex() function (see below) should be used in place of this function. The au_to_subject_ex() function formats an auid (audit user ID), an euid (effective user ID), an egid (effective group ID), a ruid (real user ID), an rgid (real group ID), a pid (process ID), an sid (audit session ID), an tid (audit terminal ID containing an IPv4 or IPv6 IP address), into a "subject token". This function should be used in place of au_to_subject(). The au_to_text() function formats the null-terminated string pointed to by text into a "text token". RETURN VALUES
These functions return NULL if memory cannot be allocated to put the resultant token into, or if an error in the input is detected. ATTRIBUTES
