ACCT(5)                       File Formats Manual                      ACCT(5)



NAME
       acct - execution accounting file

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

DESCRIPTION
       The  acct(2)  system  call makes entries in an accounting file for each
       process that terminates.  The accounting file is a sequence of  entries
       whose layout, as defined by the include file is:

       If  the process does an execve(2), the first 10 characters of the file-
       name appear in ac_comm.  The accounting flag contains  bits  indicating
       whether  execve(2)  was ever accomplished, and whether the process ever
       had super-user privileges.

SEE ALSO
       acct(2), execve(2), sa(8)
