 NAME
      utmpx - utmpx database storage file

 SYNOPSIS
      #include <&lt&lt&lt;sys/types.h>&gt&gt&gt;
      #include <&lt&lt&lt;utmpx.h>&gt&gt&gt;

 DESCRIPTION
      File utmpx contains user accounting information for all users logged
      onto the system. This file will be used instead of the utmp file,
      which is being depreciated. The following information is stored in the
      utmpx file:

	 - User login name (up to 24 characters)
	 - /etc/lines id
	 - device name (console, lnxx)
	 - process id
	 - type of entry
	 - exit status of a process marked as DEAD_PROCESS
	 - the time the entry was made
	 - Internet address of host, if remote

      The current version of HP-UX updates both utmp and utmpx files and
      formats. Direct use of utmpx file is not recommended, because utmp and
      utmpx files must be updated simultaneously. This functionality is
      provided by libc APIs pututline and pututxline

 FILES
      /etc/utmpx
