NAME
     pam_strerror -- get PAM standard error message string

LIBRARY
     Pluggable Authentication Module Library (libpam, -lpam)

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.
     The pamh argument is ignored.  For	compatibility with other implementa-
     tions, 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.

SEE ALSO
     pam(3), pam_start(3)

STANDARDS
     X/Open Single Sign-On Service (XSSO) - Pluggable Authentication Modules,
     June 1997.
