CHECK_EXPIRE(3)            BSD Programmer's Manual             CHECK_EXPIRE(3)


     check_expire - check for password expiration


     #include <stdio.h>
     #include <util.h>

     login_check_expire(FILE *back, struct passwd *pwd, char *class,
             int lastchance);


     The login_check_expire() function is called by a BSD authentication login
     script to check whether the user's password entry, as described by pwd,
     has expired.

     If a class is specified, it is used instead of the class specified in the
     user's password database entry. If the lastchance argument is non-zero,
     the user's password has expired, and it has not been expired longer than
     "password-dead" seconds (see login.conf(5)), the user will be able to log
     in one last time to change the password.


     The login_check_expire() function returns 0 if the user's password has
     not expired, and 1 if it has expired or if an error occurred.
     Status and error messages are passed back to the login script caller via
     the back channel, back.
