NAME
       acct - execution accounting file

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

DESCRIPTION
       Acct(2)  causes  entries  to  be  made into 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 exec(2), the first 10 characters of the filename
       appear in  ac_comm.   The  accounting  flag  contains  bits  indicating
       whether exec(2) was ever accomplished, and whether the process ever had
       super-user privileges.
