LOGOUT(3)		 BSD Library Functions Manual		     LOGOUT(3)

NAME
     logout — remove an entry from the utmp file

LIBRARY
     System Utilities Library (libutil, -lutil)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <libutil.h>

     int
     logout(const char *line);

DESCRIPTION
     The function logout() searches the utmp(5) file for the slot described by
     line (usually a tty name).	 If such a slot could be found, it will be
     updated with a record where the name and host fields are empty, and the
     time stamp field is updated to the current time.

RETURN VALUES
     The logout() function returns 1 if the slot described by line has been
     found and updated, 0 otherwise.

SEE ALSO
     login(3), utmp(5), wtmp(5)

BUGS
     The calling interface of logout() is inconsistent with that of login(3).
