LOGOUT(3)	       FreeBSD Library Functions Manual		     LOGOUT(3)

NAME
     logout -- remove an entry from the	utmp file

LIBRARY
     System Utilities Library (libutil,	-lutil)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <libutil.h>

     int
     logout(const char *line);

DESCRIPTION
     The function logout() searches the	utmp(5)	file for the slot described by
     line (usually a tty name).	 If such a slot	could be found,	it will	be
     updated with a record where the name and host fields are empty, and the
     time stamp	field is updated to the	current	time.

RETURN VALUES
     Logout() returns 1	if the slot described by line has been found and
     updated, 0	otherwise.

SEE ALSO
     login(3), utmp(5),	wtmp(5)

BUGS
     The calling interface of logout() is inconsistent with that of login(3).
