UPDWTMP(3)                                                   Linux Programmer's Manual                                                  UPDWTMP(3)

NAME
updwtmp, logwtmp - append an entry to the wtmp file SYNOPSIS
#include <utmp.h> void updwtmp(const char *wtmp_file, const struct utmp *ut); void logwtmp(const char *line, const char *name, const char *host); For logwtmp(), link with -lutil. DESCRIPTION
updwtmp() appends the utmp structure ut to the wtmp file. logwtmp() constructs a utmp structure using line, name, host, current time and current process ID. Then it calls updwtmp() to append the structure to the wtmp file. FILES
/var/log/wtmp database of past user logins ATTRIBUTES

Not in POSIX.1. Present on Solaris, NetBSD, and perhaps other systems. NOTES
For consistency with the other "utmpx" functions (see getutxent(3)), glibc provides (since version 2.1): #include <utmpx.h> void updwtmpx (const char *wtmpx_file, const struct utmpx *utx); This function performs the same task as updwtmp(), but differs in that it takes a utmpx structure as its last argument.
