       utmpx, wtmpx - utmpx and wtmpx database entry formats

       #include <utmpx.h>

       The  utmpx  and	wtmpx files are extended database files that have superseded the obsolete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.

       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.

       /var/adm/utmpx	 user access and adminstration information

       /var/adm/wtmpx	 history of user access and adminstrative information
