AUDIT_GET_REPLY(3)              Linux Audit API             AUDIT_GET_REPLY(3)



NAME
       audit_get_reply - Get the audit system's reply

SYNOPSIS
       #include <libaudit.h>

       int audit_get_reply(int fd, struct audit_reply *rep, reply_t block, int
       peek);


DESCRIPTION
       This function gets the next data packet sent on the audit netlink
       socket. This function is usually called after sending a command to the
       audit system. fd should be an open file descriptor returned by
       audit_open. rep should be a data structure to put the reply in. block
       is of type reply_t which is either: GET_REPLY_BLOCKING and
       GET_REPLY_NONBLOCKING. peek, if non-zero, gets the data without
       dequeueing it from the netlink socket.


RETURN VALUE
       This function returns -1 on error, 0 if error response received, and
       positive value on success.
