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.

STANDARDS         top

       The pam_syslog and pam_vsyslog functions are Linux-PAM extensions.
