    Command:

    acct

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <unistd.h>
    
           int acct(const char *filename);
    
       Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
    
           acct(): _BSD_SOURCE || (_XOPEN_SOURCE && _XOPEN_SOURCE < 500)
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The  acct()  system  call  enables  or disables process accounting.  If
           called with the name of an existing file as its argument, accounting is
           turned  on,  and  records  for each terminating process are appended to
           filename as it terminates.  An argument of NULL causes accounting to be
           turned off.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           On  success,  zero is returned.  On error, -1 is returned, and errno is
           set appropriately.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

           EACCES Write permission is denied for the  specified  file,  or  search
                  permission is denied for one of the directories in the path pre-
                  fix of filename (see also path_resolution(7)),  or  filename  is
                  not a regular file.
    
           EFAULT filename points outside your accessible address space.
    
           EIO    Error writing to the file filename.
    
           EISDIR filename is a directory.
    
           ELOOP  Too  many symbolic links were encountered in resolving filename.
    
           ENAMETOOLONG
                  filename was too long.
    
           ENFILE The system limit on the total number  of  open  files  has  been
                  reached.
    
           ENOENT The specified filename does not exist.
    
           ENOMEM Out of memory.
    
           ENOSYS BSD  process  accounting has not been enabled when the operating
                  system kernel was compiled.  The kernel configuration  parameter
                  controlling this feature is CONFIG_BSD_PROCESS_ACCT.
    
           ENOTDIR
                  A  component  used  as  a directory in filename is not in fact a
                  directory.
    
    
           The  structure  of  the  records  written  to  the  accounting  file is
           described in acct(5).
