NAME
pam_strerror - get PAM error message string SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lpam [ library... ] #include <security/pam_appl.h> const char *pam_strerror(pam_handle_t*pamh, int errnum); DESCRIPTION
The pam_strerror() function maps the PAM error number in errnum to a PAM error message string, and returns a pointer to that string. The application should not free or modify the string returned. The pamh argument is the PAM handle obtained by a prior call to pam_start(). If pam_start() returns an error, a null PAM handle should be passed. ERRORS
The pam_strerror() function returns the string "Unknown error" if errnum is out-of-range. ATTRIBUTES

Shopt -s histappend

What is the point of this? Whenever I close my shell it appends to the history file without adding this. I have never seen it overwrite my history file. # When the shell exits, append to the history file instead of overwriting it shopt -s histappend (3 Replies)
