NAME         top

       pam_syslog, pam_vsyslog - send messages to the system logger

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <syslog.h>

       #include <security/pam_ext.h>

       void pam_syslog(const pam_handle_t *pamh, int priority,
                       const char *fmt, ...);

       void pam_vsyslog(const pam_handle_t *pamh, int priority,
                        const char *fmt, va_list args);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The pam_syslog function logs messages using syslog(3) and is
       intended for internal use by Linux-PAM and PAM service modules.
       The priority argument is formed by ORing the facility and the
       level values as documented in the syslog(3) manual page.

       The pam_vsyslog function performs the same task as pam_syslog()
       with the difference that it takes a set of arguments which have
       been obtained using the stdarg(3) variable argument list macros.
