Name
       utmp, wtmp - login records

Syntax

Description

       struct utmp {

	       char    ut_name[8];	       /* user id */
	       char    ut_host[16];	       /* host name, if remote */
	       long    ut_time; 	       /* time on */
       };

       This structure gives the name of the special file associated with the user's terminal, the user's login name, and the time of the login	in
       the form of

       The  file  records  all	logins and logouts.  A null user name indicates a logout on the associated terminal.  A terminal referenced with a

       vertical  bar  (|)  or  a right brace (}) indicate the system-maintained time just before and just after a command has changed the system's
       timeframe.
