These functions do not return a value.
These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.1.
Multithreading (see pthreads(7))¶
() and getutmpx
() functions are thread-safe.
These functions are nonstandard, but appear on a few other systems, such as
Solaris and NetBSD.
These functions exist primarily for compatibility with other systems where the
structures contain different fields, or the size
of corresponding fields differs. On Linux, the two structures contain the same
fields, and the fields have the same sizes.
