updwtmp, logwtmp - append an entry to the wtmp file
void updwtmp(const char *wtmp_file, const struct utmp *ut);
void logwtmp(const char *line, const char *name, const char *host);
updwtmp() appends the utmp structure ut to the wtmp file.
logwtmp() constructs a utmp structure using line, name, host, current
time and current process ID. Then it calls updwtmp() to append the
structure to the utmp file.
Both functions are available under glibc2, but not under libc5. How-
ever, logwtmp() used to occur in the old libbsd. These days, the
logwtmp() function is included in libutil. (Hence you'll need to add
-lutil to your compiler command line to get it.)
Not in POSIX.1-2001. Present on Solaris, NetBSD, and perhaps other
database of past user logins
