getnetgrent(3yp)					      getnetgrent(3yp)

Name
       getnetgrent,  setnetgrent,  endnetgrent,	 innetgr  -  get network group
       entry

Syntax
       innetgr(netgroup, machine, user, domain)
       char *netgroup, *machine, *user, *domain;
       setnetgrent(netgroup)
       char *netgroup
       endnetgrent()
       getnetgrent(machinep, userp, domainp)
       char **machinep, **userp, **domainp;

Description
       The routine accesses the file and checks to see if the specified	 input
       parameters  match  an  entry  in the file.  The routine returns 1 if it
       matches an entry, or 0 if it does  not.	 Any  of  the  three  strings;
       machine,	 user,	or  domain  can be NULL, which signifies any string in
       that position is valid.

       The routine returns the next member of  a  network  group.   After  the
       call,  will  contain  a	pointer to a string containing the name of the
       machine part of the network group member, and similarly for  userp  and
       domainp.	  If machinep, userp or domainp is returned as a NULL pointer,
       it signifies any string is valid.  The routine allocates space for  the
       name  by	 using	the  routine.	This space is released when an call is
       made.  The routine returns 1 if it succeeds in obtaining another member
       of the network group, or 0 if it reaches the end of the group.

       The  routine  establishes the network group from which will obtain mem‐
       bers, and also restarts calls to from the beginning of  the  list.   If
       the previous call was to a different network group, an call is implied.

       The routine releases the space allocated during the calls.
