.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.PP
The
\fBpam_syslog\fR
function logs messages using
\fBsyslog\fR(3)
and is intended for internal use by Linux\-PAM and PAM service modules\&. The
\fIpriority\fR
argument is formed by ORing the facility and the level values as documented in the
\fBsyslog\fR(3)
manual page\&.
.PP
The
\fBpam_vsyslog\fR
function performs the same task as
\fBpam_syslog()\fR
with the difference that it takes a set of arguments which have been obtained using the
\fBstdarg\fR(3)
variable argument list macros\&.

.SH "STANDARDS"

functions are Linux\-PAM extensions\&.
