-.TH PAM_START 3 "1997 Feb 15" "Linux-PAM 0.56" "Application Programmers' Manual"
-.SH NAME
-
-pam_start, pam_end \- activating Linux-PAM
-
-.SH SYNOPSIS
-.B #include <security/pam_appl.h>
-.sp
-.BI "int pam_start(const char " *service ", const char " *user ", const struct pam_conv " *conv ", pam_handle_t " **pamh_p ");"
-.sp
-.BI "int pam_end(pam_handle_t " *pamh ", int " pam_status ");"
-.sp 2
-.SH DESCRIPTION
-.TP
-.B pam_start
-Initialize the
-.I Linux-PAM
-library. Identifying the application with a particular
-.IR service
-name. The
-.IR user "name"
-can take the value
-.IR NULL ", "
-if not known at the time the interface is initialized. The
-conversation structure is passed to the library via the
-.IR conv
-argument. (For a complete description of this and other structures
-the reader is directed to the more verbose
-.IR Linux-PAM
-application developers' guide). Upon successful initialization, an
-opaque pointer-handle for future access to the library is returned
-through the contents of the
-.IR pamh_p
-pointer.
-
-.TP
-.B pam_end
-Terminate the
-.B Linux-PAM
-library. The service application associated with the
-.IR pamh
-handle, is terminated. The argument,
-.IR pam_status ", "
-passes the value most recently returned to the application from the
-library; it indicates the manner in which the library should be
-shutdown. Besides carrying a return value, this argument may be
-logically OR'd with
-.IR PAM_DATA_SILENT
-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
-.IR 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.).
-
-.SH "RETURN VALUE"

-.B pam_start
