NAME
     utmp_update -- update utmpx database

SYNOPSIS
     utmp_update utmpx_entry

DESCRIPTION
     utmp_update is a helper program to allow a user to update his own utmpx(5) entry.
     utmp_update does some consistency checks on the strvis(3)-encoded utmpx_entry and then
     updates the utmpx(5) database of currently logged in users.

     utmp_update should not be called directly, but will normally only be called by pututxline(3)
     if the privileges of the calling user are not sufficient.

EXIT STATUS
     utmp_update returns 0 on success, and 1 if an error occurred.

SEE ALSO
     pututxline(3), utmpx(5)
