PAM_STRERROR(3) NetBSD Library Functions Manual PAM_STRERROR(3)
pam_strerror -- get PAM standard error message string
#include <sys/types.h> #include <security/pam_appl.h> const char * pam_strerror(const pam_handle_t *pamh, int error_number);
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.
The pam_strerror() function returns NULL on failure.
