+(now we are getting networked apps, be careful to try and test on a
+securely isolated system!)
+
+N=2 <-- blank xsh
+
+Following a 'make install' (which should be done as root) in the
+parent directory this directory will contain $N binaries. The source
+for these programs is in ../examples. They are various short programs
+to use and otherwise test-drive the Linux-PAM libraries/modules with.
+
+These programs grant no privileges, but they give an idea of how well
+the modules are working.
+
+blank is new as of Linux-PAM-0.21. If you are writing/modifying an
+application it might be a place to start...
+
+xsh is new as of Linux-PAM-0.31, it is identical to blank, but invokes
+/bin/sh if the user is authenticated.
+
+[other apps are to be found in SimplePAMApps and many more on Red
+Hat's server.. http://www.redhat.com/]
+
+Best wishes
