NAME

utmpx.h - user accounting database definitions

SYNOPSIS

#include <utmpx.h>

DESCRIPTION

The <utmpx.h> header shall define the utmpx structure that shall include at least the following members:

char ut_user[] User login name. char ut_id[] Unspecified initialization process identifier. char ut_line[] Device name. pid_t ut_pid Process ID. short ut_type Type of entry. struct timeval ut_tv Time entry was made.

The pid_t type shall be defined through typedef as described in <sys/types.h> .

The timeval structure shall be defined as described in <sys/time.h> .

Inclusion of the <utmpx.h> header may also make visible all symbols from <sys/time.h>.

The following symbolic constants shall be defined as possible values for the ut_type member of the utmpx structure:
EMPTY No valid user accounting information.
BOOT_TIME
  Identifies time of system boot.
OLD_TIME
  Identifies time when system clock changed.
NEW_TIME
  Identifies time after system clock changed.
USER_PROCESS
  Identifies a process.
INIT_PROCESS
  Identifies a process spawned by the init process.
LOGIN_PROCESS
  Identifies the session leader of a logged-in user.
DEAD_PROCESS
  Identifies a session leader who has exited.

The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros. Function prototypes shall be provided.

void endutxent(void); struct utmpx *getutxent(void); struct utmpx *getutxid(const struct utmpx *); struct utmpx *getutxline(const struct utmpx *); struct utmpx *pututxline(const struct utmpx *); void setutxent(void);

The following sections are informative.
