    Command:

    pam_end

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <security/pam_appl.h>
    
           int pam_end(pam_handle_t *pamh, int pam_status);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The pam_end function terminates the PAM transaction and is the last
           function an application should call in the PAM context. Upon return the
           handle pamh is no longer valid and all memory associated with it will
           be invalid.
    
           The pam_status argument should be set to the value returned to the
           application by the last PAM library call.
    
           The value taken by pam_status is used as an argument to the module
           specific callback function, cleanup() (See pam_set_data(3) and
           pam_get_data(3)). In this way the module can be given notification of
           the pass/fail nature of the tear-down process, and perform any last
           minute tasks that are appropriate to the module before it is unlinked.
           This argument can be logically OR?d with PAM_DATA_SILENT to indicate to
           indicate that the module should not treat the call too seriously. It is
           generally used to indicate that the current closing of the library is
           in a fork(2)ed process, and that the parent will take care of cleaning
           up things that exist outside of the current process space (files etc.).
    
           This function free?s all memory for items associated with the
           pam_set_item(3) and pam_get_item(3) functions. Pointers associated with
           such objects are not valid anymore after pam_end was called.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUES

           PAM_SUCCESS
               Transaction was successful terminated.
    
           PAM_SYSTEM_ERR
               System error, for example a NULL pointer was submitted as PAM
               handle or the function was called by a module.
