PAM_SET_DATA(3)	       FreeBSD Library Functions Manual	       PAM_SET_DATA(3)

NAME
     pam_set_data -- set module	information

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <security/pam_appl.h>

     int
     pam_set_data(pam_handle_t *pamh, const char *module_data_name,
	 void *data,
	 void (*cleanup)(pam_handle_t *pamh, void *data, int pam_end_status));

DESCRIPTION
     The pam_set_data()	function associates a pointer to an opaque object with
     an	arbitrary string specified by the module_data_name argument, in	the
     PAM context specified by the pamh argument.

     If	not NULL, the cleanup argument should point to a function responsible
     for releasing the resources associated with the object.

     This function and its counterpart pam_get_data(3) are useful for managing
     data that are meaningful only to a	particular service module.

RETURN VALUES
     The pam_set_data()	function returns one of	the following values:

     [PAM_SUCCESS]	 Success.

     [PAM_BUF_ERR]	 Memory	buffer error.

     [PAM_SYSTEM_ERR]	 System	error.
