PAM_SET_DATA(3)            Library Functions Manual            PAM_SET_DATA(3)

NAME
     pam_set_data -- set 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_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_BUF_ERR]       Memory buffer error.

     [PAM_SYSTEM_ERR]    System error.
