+This function together with the
+function is useful to manage module\-specific data meaningful only to the calling PAM module.
+function looks up the object associated with the (hopefully) unique string
+in the PAM context specified by the
+argument. A successful call to
+will result in
+pointing to the object. Note, this data is
+a copy and should be treated as
+by the module.
+Data was successful retrieved.
+A NULL pointer was submitted as PAM handle or the function was called by an application.
+Module data not found or there is an entry, but it has the value NULL.
