NAME
ttyslot - find the slot of the current user in the user accounting database SYNOPSIS
#include <stdlib.h> int ttyslot(void); DESCRIPTION
The ttyslot() function returns the index of the current user's entry in the user accounting database, /var/adm/utmpx. The current user's entry is an entry for which the utline member matches the name of a terminal device associated with any of the process's file descriptors 0, 1 or 2. The index is an ordinal number representing the record number in the database of the current user's entry. The first entry in the database is represented by the return value 0. RETURN VALUES
Upon successful completion, ttyslot() returns the index of the current user's entry in the user accounting database. If an error was encountered while searching for the terminal name or if none of the above file descriptors are associated with a terminal device, -1 is returned. FILES

NAME
utmpx, wtmpx - utmpx and wtmpx database entry formats SYNOPSIS
#include <utmpx.h> /var/adm/utmpx /var/adm/wtmpx DESCRIPTION
The utmpx and wtmpx files are extended database files that have superseded the obsolete utmp and wtmp database files.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. USAGE
Applications should not access these databases directly, but should use the functions described on the getutxent(3C) manual page to inter- act with the utmpx and wtmpx databases to ensure that they are maintained consistently. FILES
