NAME
       acct - execution accounting file

SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/acct.h>

DESCRIPTION
       The  acct(2)  system  call  arranges for entries to be made in an accounting file for each
       process that terminates.  The accounting file is a sequence of entries  whose  layout,  as
       defined by the include file is:

       If the process was created by an execve(2), the first 10 characters of the filename appear
       in ac_comm.  The accounting flag contains  bits	indicating  whether  execve(2)	was  ever
       accomplished, and whether the process ever had super-user privileges.

SEE ALSO
       acct(2), execve(2), sa(8)
