Synopsis

        #include <syslog.h>
        #include <security/pam_ext.h>
void pam_syslog( const pam_handle_t *pamh,
  int priority,
  const char *fmt,
  ...);

  int priority,
  const char *fmt,

DESCRIPTION

The pam_syslog function logs messages using syslog(3) and is intended for internal use by Linux-PAM and PAM service modules. The priority argument is formed by ORing the facility and the level values as documented in the syslog(3) manual page.

The pam_vsyslog function performs the same task as pam_syslog() with the difference that it takes a set of arguments which have been obtained using the stdarg(3) variable argument list macros.
