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 <utmpx.h> header shall define the pid_t type through typedef, as described in <sys/types.h>.
The <utmpx.h> header shall define the timeval structure as described in <sys/time.h>.
Inclusion of the <utmpx.h> header may also make visible all symbols from <sys/time.h>.
The <utmpx.h> header shall define the following symbolic constants 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.
