    fgetpwent

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <stdio.h>
           #include <sys/types.h>
           #include <pwd.h>
    
           struct passwd *fgetpwent(FILE *stream);
    
       Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):
    
           fgetpwent(): _SVID_SOURCE
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The  fgetpwent()  function  returns a pointer to a structure containing
           the broken out fields of a line in the file stream.  The first time  it
           is called it returns the first entry; thereafter, it returns successive
           entries.  The file referred to by stream must have the same  format  as
           /etc/passwd (see passwd(5)).
    
           The passwd structure is defined in <pwd.h> as follows:
    
               struct passwd {
                   char   *pw_name;       /* username */
                   char   *pw_passwd;     /* user password */
                   uid_t   pw_uid;        /* user ID */
                   gid_t   pw_gid;        /* group ID */
                   char   *pw_gecos;      /* real name */
                   char   *pw_dir;        /* home directory */
                   char   *pw_shell;      /* shell program */
               };
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           The  fgetpwent()  function  returns a pointer to a passwd structure, or
           NULL if there are no more entries or an error occurs.  In the event  of
           an error, errno is set to indicate the cause.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

           ENOMEM Insufficient memory to allocate passwd structure.
    
    
    

    FILES
