SYNOPSIS


.In bsm/libbsm.h void au_free_token token_t *tok

DESCRIPTION

The BSM API generally manages deallocation of
.Vt token_t objects. However, if au_write(3) is passed a bad audit descriptor, the
.Vt token_t * parameter will be left untouched. In that case, the caller can deallocate the
.Vt token_t using au_free_token if desired.

The tok argument is a
.Vt token_t * generated by one of the au_to_* BSM API calls. For convenience, tok may be NULL, in which case au_free_token returns immediately.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTES

This is, in fact, what audit_write(3) does, in keeping with the existing memory management model of the BSM API.
