       auparse_init - initialize an instance of the audit parsing library


       #include <auparse.h>

       auparse_state_t *auparse_init(ausource_t source, const void *b);


       auparse_init  initializes an instance of the audit parsing library. The
       function returns an opaque pointer to the parser’s internal  state.  It
       is  used  in  subsequent  calls  to the library so. The source variable
       determines where the library looks for data. Legal values can be:

            AUSOURCE_LOGS - use audit logs
            AUSOURCE_FILE - use a file
            AUSOURCE_FILE_ARRAY - use several files
            AUSOURCE_BUFFER - use a buffer
            AUSOURCE_BUFFER_ARRAY - use an array of buffers
            AUSOURCE_DESCRIPTOR - use a particular descriptor
            AUSOURCE_FILE_POINTER - use a stdio FILE pointer
            AUSOURCE_FEED - feed data to parser with auparse_feed()

       The pointer ’b’ is used to set the file name, array of  filenames,  the
       buffer  address,  or an array of pointers to buffers, or the descriptor
       number based on what source is given. When the data source is an  array
       of  files  or  buffers,  you would create an array of pointers with the
       last one being a NULL pointer. Buffers should be NUL terminated.


       Returns a NULL pointer if an error occurs; otherwise, the return  value
       is an aopaque pointer to the parser’s internal state.


       auparse_reset(3), auparse_destroy(3).  auparse_feed(3).
