    misc_conv

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <security/pam_misc.h>
    
           void misc_conv(int num_msg, const struct pam_message **msgm,
                          struct pam_response **response, void *appdata_ptr);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The misc_conv function is part of libpam_misc and not of the standard
           libpam library. This function will prompt the user with the appropriate
           comments and obtain the appropriate inputs as directed by
           authentication modules.
    
           In addition to simply slotting into the appropriate pam_conv(3), this
           function provides some time-out facilities. The function exports five
           variables that can be used by an application programmer to limit the
           amount of time this conversation function will spend waiting for the
           user to type something. The five variabls are as follows:
    
           time_t pam_misc_conv_warn_time;
               This variable contains the time (as returned by time(2)) that the
               user should be first warned that the clock is ticking. By default
               it has the value 0, which indicates that no such warning will be
               given. The application may set its value to sometime in the future,
               but this should be done prior to passing control to the Linux-PAM
               library.
    
           const char *pam_misc_conv_warn_line;
               Used in conjuction with pam_misc_conv_warn_time, this variable is a
               pointer to the string that will be displayed when it becomes time
               to warn the user that the timeout is approaching. Its default value
               is a translated version of "...Time is running out...", but this
               can be changed by the application prior to passing control to
               Linux-PAM.
    
           time_t pam_misc_conv_die_time;
               This variable contains the time (as returned by time(2)) that the
               will time out. By default it has the value 0, which indicates that
               the conversation function will not timeout. The application may set
               its value to sometime in the future, but this should be done prior
               to passing control to the Linux-PAM library.
    
           const char *pam_misc_conv_die_line;
               Used in conjuction with pam_misc_conv_die_time, this variable is a
               pointer to the string that will be displayed when the conversation
               times out. Its default value is a translated version of "...Sorry,
               your time is up!", but this can be changed by the application prior
               to passing control to Linux-PAM.
    
           int pam_misc_conv_died;
               Following a return from the Linux-PAM libraray, the value of this
               variable indicates whether the conversation has timed out. A value
               of 1 indicates the time-out occurred.
               0), but can be redefined as desired by the application.
