UTMP_UPDATE(8)            BSD System Manager's Manual           UTMP_UPDATE(8)

NAME
     utmp_update -- update utmpx database

SYNOPSIS
     utmp_update utmpx_entry

DESCRIPTION
     utmp_update is a helper program to allow a user to update his own
     utmpx(5) entry.  utmp_update does some consistency checks on the
     strvis(3)-encoded utmpx_entry and then updates the utmpx(5) database of
     currently logged in users.

     utmp_update should not be called directly, but will normally only be
     called by pututxline(3) if the privileges of the calling user are not
     sufficient.

EXIT STATUS
     utmp_update returns 0 on success, and 1 if an error occurred.
