NAME

       auparse_interpret_field, auparse_interpret_realpath,auparse_interpret_sock_family,auparse_interpret_sock_port,auparse_interpret_sock_address - get current field's interpreted value

SYNOPSIS

       #include <auparse.h>

       const char *auparse_interpret_field(auparse_state_t *au);
       const char *auparse_interpret_realpath(auparse_state_t *au);
       const char *auparse_interpret_sock_family(auparse_state_t *au);
       const char *auparse_interpret_sock_port(auparse_state_t *au);
       const char *auparse_interpret_sock_address(auparse_state_t *au);

DESCRIPTION

       auparse_interpret_field allows access to the interpreted value in the current field of the
       current record in the current event. The returned  string  is  escaped  using  the  chosen
       method.  The returned value will be destroyed if you call this function again. If you need
       to interpret another field and keep this value, you will have to copy it for later use.

       Examples of things that could be interpreted are: uid, gid, syscall numbers,  exit  codes,
       file paths, socket addresses, permissions, modes, and capabilities. There are likely to be
       more in the future. If a value cannot be interpreted, its original value is returned.

       auparse_interpret_realpath is  like  auparse_interpret_field  except  that  it  will  call
       realpath  on  the  results  of gluing the cwd and file together. This also implies that it
       only valid to be called for the file name given in a PATH record.

       auparse_interpret_sock_family will only return the  socket  family  portion  of  a  socket
       address.

       auparse_interpret_sock_port will only return the port portion of a socket address. Not all
       socket families have a port. If that is the case, you will get a NULL value in which  case
       your best option is to use the normal interpretation function.

       auparse_interpret_sock_address  will  only return the address portion of a socket address.
       Not all socket families have an ip address. If that is the case, you will get a NULL value
       in which case your best option is to use the normal interpretation function.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns NULL if there is an error otherwise a pointer to the interpreted value.
