PAM_VPROMPT(3)		 BSD Library Functions Manual		PAM_VPROMPT(3)

     pam_vprompt — call the conversation function

     Pluggable Authentication Module Library (libpam, -lpam)

     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <security/pam_appl.h>

     pam_vprompt(const pam_handle_t *pamh, int style, char **resp,
	 const char *fmt, va_list ap);

     The pam_vprompt function constructs a string from the fmt and ap argu‐
     ments using vsnprintf(3), and passes it to the given PAM context's con‐
     versation function.

     The style argument specifies the type of interaction requested, and must
     be one of the following:

			 Display the message and obtain the user's response
			 without displaying it.

     PAM_PROMPT_ECHO_ON	 Display the message and obtain the user's response.

     PAM_ERROR_MSG	 Display the message as an error message, and do not
			 wait for a response.

     PAM_TEXT_INFO	 Display the message as an informational message, and
			 do not wait for a response.

     A pointer to the response, or NULL if the conversation function did not
     return one, is stored in the location pointed to by the resp argument.

     The message and response should not exceed PAM_MAX_MSG_SIZE or
     PAM_MAX_RESP_SIZE, respectively.  If they do, they may be truncated.

     The pam_vprompt function returns one of the following values:

     [PAM_BUF_ERR]	 Memory buffer error.

     [PAM_CONV_ERR]	 Conversation failure.

     [PAM_SYSTEM_ERR]	 System error.

     pam(3), pam_error(3), pam_info(3), pam_prompt(3), pam_strerror(3),
     pam_verror(3), pam_vinfo(3), vsnprintf(3)

     The pam_vprompt function is an OpenPAM extension.

     The pam_vprompt function and this manual page were developed for the
     FreeBSD Project by ThinkSec AS and Network Associates Laboratories, the
     Security Research Division of Network Associates, Inc. under DARPA/SPAWAR
     contract N66001-01-C-8035 (“CBOSS”), as part of the DARPA CHATS research
