PAM_GET_DATA(3)            Library Functions Manual            PAM_GET_DATA(3)

NAME
     pam_get_data -- get module information

LIBRARY
     Pluggable Authentication Module Library (libpam, -lpam)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;sys/types.h>&gt;
     #include <&lt;security/pam_appl.h>&gt;

     int
     pam_get_data(const pam_handle_t *pamh, const char
     *module_data_name, const void **data);

DESCRIPTION
     The pam_get_data function looks up the opaque object associated with the
     string specified by the module_data_name argument, in the PAM context
     specified by the pamh argument.  A pointer to the object is stored in the
     location pointed to by the data argument.  If pam_get_data fails, the
     data argument is untouched.

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

RETURN VALUES
     The pam_get_data function returns one of the following values:

     [PAM_NO_MODULE_DATA]
                         Module data not found.

     [PAM_SYSTEM_ERR]    System error.

SEE ALSO
     pam(3), pam_set_data(3), pam_strerror(3)
