PAM_STRERROR(3)         NetBSD Library Functions Manual        PAM_STRERROR(3)

NAME
     pam_strerror -- get PAM standard error message string

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <security/pam_appl.h>

     const char *
     pam_strerror(const pam_handle_t *pamh, int error_number);

DESCRIPTION
     The pam_strerror() function returns a pointer to a string containing a
     textual description of the error indicated by the error_number argument
     in the context of the PAM transaction described by the pamh.  The pamh
     argument is ignored.  For compatibility with other implementations, it
     should be either a valid PAM handle returned by a previous call to
     pam_start(3), or NULL.

RETURN VALUES
     The pam_strerror() function returns NULL on failure.
