DESCRIPTION         top

       After calling the auparse_normalize function, you will probably
       want to access the audit event data. These function provide
       access to the results of the normalization. There are 2 kinds of
       function, metadata and positioning.

       The metadata functions all return a pointer to a string that
       describes something about the event. This data does not live
       inside the event but is kept in lookup tables inside the auparse

       The positioning function are different in that they move the
       internal cursor of auparse to the record and field that contains
       the information you want. You then use field accessor functions
       to retrieve the values.

RETURN VALUE         top

       The positioning functions return < 0 on error, 0 if
       uninitialized, and 1 on success. The metadata functions return
       NULL on error and a pointer to a string on success.
