AU_FREE_TOKEN(3) BSD Library Functions Manual AU_FREE_TOKEN(3)NAMEau_free_token — deallocate a token_t created by any of the au_to_*() BSM
The BSM API generally manages deallocation of token_t objects. However,
if au_write(3) is passed a bad audit descriptor, the token_t * parameter
will be left untouched. In that case, the caller can deallocate the
token_t using au_free_token() if desired.
The tok argument is a token_t * generated by one of the au_to_*() BSM API
calls. For convenience, tok may be NULL, in which case au_free_token()
This is, in fact, what audit_write(3) does, in keeping with the existing
memory management model of the BSM API.
