AUDIT_GET_REPLY(3)           Linux Audit API          AUDIT_GET_REPLY(3)

NAME         top

       audit_get_reply - Get the audit system's reply

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <libaudit.h>

       int audit_get_reply(int fd, struct audit_reply *rep, reply_t
       block, int peek);

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function gets the next data packet sent on the audit netlink
       socket. This function is usually called after sending a command
       to the audit system. fd should be an open file descriptor
       returned by audit_open. rep should be a data structure to put the
       reply in. block is of type reply_t which is either:
       GET_REPLY_BLOCKING and GET_REPLY_NONBLOCKING. peek, if non-zero,
       gets the data without dequeueing it from the netlink socket.

RETURN VALUE         top

       This function returns -1 on error, 0 if error response received,
       and positive value on success.

SEE ALSO         top
