       struct au_event_ent *getauevnum_r(au_event_ent_t *e,
	    au_event_t event_number);

       These  functions	 document  the	programming  interface	for  obtaining
       entries from the audit_event(4) file. The  getauevent(),	 getauevnam(),
       getauevnum(),  getauevent(),  getauevnam(),  and getauevnum() functions
       each return a pointer to an audit_event structure.

       The getauevent() and  getauevent_r()  functions	enumerate  audit_event
       entries.	 Successive  calls to these functions return either successive
       audit_event entries or NULL.

       The getauevnam() and getauevnam_r() functions search for an audit_event
       entry with event_name.

       The getauevnum() and getauevnum_r() functions search for an audit_event
       entry with event_number.

       The getauevnonam() function searches  for  an  audit_event  entry  with
       event_name and returns the corresponding event number.

       The  setauevent() function ``rewinds'' to the beginning of the enumera‐
       tion of	audit_event entries.   Calls  to  getauevnam(),	 getauevnum(),
       getauevnonum(), getauevnam_r(), or getauevnum_r() can leave the enumer‐
       ation in an indeterminate state. The setauevent()  function  should  be
       called before the first call to getauevent() or getauevent_r().

       The  endauevent()  function  can be called to indicate that audit_event
       processing is complete. The system can then close any open  audit_event
       file, deallocate storage, and so forth.

       The  getauevent_r(),  getauevnam_r(), and getauevnum_r() functions each
       take an argument e, which is  a	pointer	 to  an	 au_event_ent_t.  This
       pointer	is returned on a successful function call.  To assure there is
       enough space for the information returned, the applications  programmer
       should  be  sure	 to  allocate  AU_EVENT_NAME_MAX and AU_EVENT_DESC_MAX
       bytes for the ae_name and ac_desc elements of the  au_event_ent_t  data

       The  internal representation of an audit_event entry is an au_event_ent
       structure defined in <bsm/libbsm.h> with the following members:

	 au_event_t	 ae_number
	 char		 *ae_name;
	 char		 *ae_desc*;
	 au_class_t	 ae_class;

       The getauevent(), getauevnam(), getauevnum(), getauevent_r(),  getauev‐
       nam_r(),	  and	getauevnum_r()	 functions   return  a	pointer	 to  a
       au_event_ent structure if the requested entry is successfully  located.
       Otherwise they return NULL.

       The  getauevnonam() function returns an event number of type au_event_t
       if it successfully enumerates an	 entry.	 Otherwise  it	returns	 NULL,
       indicating it could not find the requested event name.

       The getauevent(),  getauevnam(), and getauevnum() functions are Unsafe.
       The   equivalent	  functions   getauevent_r(),	getauevnam_r(),	   and
       getauevnum_r()  provide	the same functionality and an MT-Safe function
       call interface.

       All  information	 for  the getauevent(), getauevnam(), and getauevnum()
       functions is contained in a static area, so it must be copied if it  is
       to be saved.

       The  functionality  described  on this manual page is available only if
       the Solaris Auditing has been enabled.  See bsmconv(1M) for more infor‐
