Name

pam_misc_setenv — BSD like PAM environment variable setting

Synopsis

        #include <security/pam_misc.h>
int pam_misc_setenv( pam_handle_t *pamh,
  const char *name,
  const char *value,
  int readonly);
 

DESCRIPTION

This function performs a task equivalent to pam_putenv(3), its syntax is, however, more like the BSD style function; setenv(). The name and value are concatenated with an '=' to form a name=value and passed to pam_putenv(). If, however, the PAM variable is already set, the replacement will only be applied if the last argument, readonly, is zero.
