OPENPAM_LOG(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 					    OPENPAM_LOG(3)

NAME
openpam_log -- log a message through syslog LIBRARY
Pluggable Authentication Module Library (libpam, -lpam) SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <security/pam_appl.h> #include <security/openpam.h> void openpam_log(int level, const char *fmt, ...); DESCRIPTION
The openpam_log function logs messages using syslog(3). It is primarily intended for internal use by the library and modules. The level argument indicates the importance of the message. The following levels are defined: PAM_LOG_DEBUG Debugging messages. These messages are logged with a syslog(3) priority of LOG_DEBUG. PAM_LOG_VERBOSE Information about the progress of the authentication process, or other non-essential messages. These messages are logged with a syslog(3) priority of LOG_INFO. PAM_LOG_NOTICE Messages relating to non-fatal errors. These messages are logged with a syslog(3) priority of LOG_NOTICE. PAM_LOG_ERROR Messages relating to serious errors. These messages are logged with a syslog(3) priority of LOG_ERR. The remaining arguments are a printf(3) format string and the corresponding arguments. SEE ALSO
pam(3), printf(3), syslog(3) STANDARDS
The openpam_log function is an OpenPAM extension. AUTHORS

These functions are OpenPAM extensions to the PAM API. Those named pam_*() are, in the author's opinion, logical and necessary extensions to the standard API, while those named openpam_*() are either simple convenience functions, or functions intimately tied to OpenPAM implementa- tion details, and therefore not well suited to standardization.
