PAM_PUTENV(3)              Library Functions Manual              PAM_PUTENV(3)

NAME
     pam_putenv -- set the value of an environment variable

LIBRARY
     Pluggable Authentication Module Library (libpam, -lpam)

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

     int
     pam_putenv(pam_handle_t *pamh, const char *namevalue);

DESCRIPTION
     The pam_putenv function sets a environment variable.  Its semantics are
     similar to those of putenv(3), but it modifies the PAM context's
     environment list instead of the application's.

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

     [PAM_BUF_ERR]       Memory buffer error.

     [PAM_SYSTEM_ERR]    System error.

SEE ALSO
     pam(3), pam_getenv(3), pam_getenvlist(3), pam_setenv(3), pam_strerror(3),
     putenv(3)

STANDARDS
