I hope this is the right place to ask programming related questions.

I'm looking at the sample PAM application in the handbook and it appears
straight-froward enough.

But pam_authenticate() seems to emit its own password prompt and there
seems to be no obvious way to simply feed it a plain text password.  

I'm manually collecting a password from the user.  

Can someone point me in the right direction?
