NAME
getauditflags, getauditflagsbin, getauditflagschar - convert audit flag specifications
SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lbsm -lsocket -lnsl [ library... ] #include <sys/param.h> #include <bsm/libbsm.h> int getauditflagsbin(char *auditstring, au_mask_t *masks); int getauditflagschar(char *auditstring, au_mask_t *masks, int verbose);
DESCRIPTION
The getauditflagsbin() function converts the character representation of audit values pointed to by auditstring into au_mask_t fields pointed to by masks. These fields indicate which events are to be audited when they succeed and which are to be audited when they fail. The character string syntax is described in audit_control(4). The getauditflagschar() function converts the au_mask_t fields pointed to by masks into a string pointed to by auditstring. If verbose is 0, the short (2-character) flag names are used. If verbose is non-zero, the long flag names are used. The auditstring argument should be large enough to contain the ASCII representation of the events. The auditstring argument contains a series of event names, each one identifying a single audit class, separated by commas. The au_mask_t fields pointed to by masks correspond to binary values defined in <bsm/audit.h>, which is read by <bsm/libbsm.h>.
RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, getauditflagsbin() and getauditflagschar() return 0. Otherwise they return -1.
