       getfsent, getfsspec, getfsfile, getfstype, setfsent, endfsent - get file system descriptor
       file entry

       #include <fstab.h>

       struct fstab *getfsent()

       struct fstab *getfsspec(spec)
       char *spec;

       struct fstab *getfsfile(file)
       char *file;

       struct fstab *getfstype(type)
       char *type;

       int setfsent()

       int endfsent()

       Getfsent, getfsspec, getfstype, and getfsfile each return a pointer to an object with  the
       following structure containing the broken-out fields of a line in the file system descrip-
       tion file, <fstab.h>.

	      struct fstab {
		   char *fs_spec;
		   char *fs_file;
		   char *fs_type;
		   int	fs_freq;
		   int	fs_passno;

       The fields have meanings described in fstab(5).

       Getfsent reads the next line of the file, opening the file if necessary.

       Setfsent opens and rewinds the file.

       Endfsent closes the file.

       Getfsspec and getfsfile sequentially search from the beginning of the file until a  match-
       ing  special  file  name  or  file system file name is found, or until EOF is encountered.
       Getfstype does likewise, matching on the file system type field.



       Null pointer (0) returned on EOF or error.

       All information is contained in a static area so it must be copied if it is to be saved.
