Oracle Solaris Studio - Version 12.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On :  12.6 version, c

Comparing the /usr/include/bsm/audit_record.h header file between Solaris 10 with Solaris Studio 12.4 and Solaris 11.3 with Developer Studio 12.6 shows that for au_close API a new fourth parameter has been added.

However, there is no way to check the manual page, as the 3BSM man pages are not available on Solaris 11.3.

Even though it is known that au_close now requires an additional parameter, it is not known how to compile programs because of the lack of man pages and lack of knowledge on exactly what the value of the new parameter needs to be.
