ausearch_add_regex(3) — Linux manual page



NAME         top

       ausearch_add_regex - use regular expression search rule

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <auparse.h>

       int ausearch_add_regex(auparse_state_t *au, const char *regexp);

DESCRIPTION         top

       ausearch_add_regex adds one search condition based on a regular
       expression to the current audit search expression. The search
       conditions can then be used to scan logs, files, or buffers for
       something of interest. The regular expression follows the posix
       extended regular expression conventions, and is matched against
       the full record (without interpreting field values).

       If an existing search expression E is already defined, this
       function replaces it by (E && this_regexp).

RETURN VALUE         top

       Returns -1 if an error occurs; otherwise, 0 for success.

SEE ALSO         top

       ausearch_add_expression(3), ausearch_add_item(3),
       ausearch_clear(3), ausearch_next_event(3), regcomp(3).
