NAME
       utmpx, wtmpx - utmpx and	wtmpx database entry formats

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<utmpx.h>
       /var/adm/utmpx
       /var/adm/wtmpx

DESCRIPTION
       The  utmpx and wtmpx files are extended database	files that have	super-
       seded the obsolete utmp and wtmp	database files.

       The utmpx database contains user	access and accounting information  for
       commands	 such  as  who(1),  write(1), and login(1). The	wtmpx database
       contains	the history of user access and accounting information for  the
       utmpx database.

USAGE
       Applications should not access these databases directly,	but should use
       the functions described on the getutxent(3C) manual  page  to  interact
       with  the  utmpx	and wtmpx databases to ensure that they	are maintained
       consistently.
