PAM_PROMPT(3) Linux-PAM Manual PAM_PROMPT(3)
pam_prompt, pam_vprompt - interface to conversation function
#include <security/pam_ext.h> int pam_prompt(pam_handle_t *pamh, int style, char **response, const char *fmt, ...); int pam_vprompt(pam_handle_t *pamh, int style, char **response, const char *fmt, va_list args);
The pam_prompt function constructs a message from the specified format string and arguments and passes it to the conversation function as set by the service. Upon successful return, response is set to point to a string returned from the conversation function. This string is allocated on heap and should be freed.
PAM_BUF_ERR Memory buffer error. PAM_CONV_ERR Conversation failure. PAM_SUCCESS Conversation succeeded, response is set. PAM_SYSTEM_ERR System error.
The pam_prompt and pam_vprompt functions are Linux-PAM extensions.
