NAME
       acct - execution accounting file

SYNOPSIS
       #include <sys/acct.h>

DESCRIPTION
       The  kernel  maintains an accounting information structure for all processes. If a process
       terminates, and accounting is enabled, the kernel calls the acct(2) function  to  prepare,
       and  then  append, a record for this process to the accounting file. The accounting struc-
       ture struct acct is also described in the file /usr/include/linux/acct.h.

SEE ALSO
