    getfsent

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <fstab.h>
    
           void endfsent(void);
    
           struct fstab *getfsent(void);
    
           struct fstab *getfsfile(const char *mount_point);
    
           struct fstab *getfsspec(const char *special_file);
    
           int setfsent(void);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           These functions read from the file /etc/fstab.   The  struct  fstab  is
           defined by:
    
               struct fstab {
                   char       *fs_spec;       /* block device name */
                   char       *fs_file;       /* mount point */
                   char       *fs_vfstype;    /* file-sysem type */
                   char       *fs_mntops;     /* mount options */
                   const char *fs_type;       /* rw/rq/ro/sw/xx option */
                   int         fs_freq;       /* dump frequency, in days */
                   int         fs_passno;     /* pass number on parallel dump */
               };
    
           Here  the  field  fs_type  contains  (on a *BSD system) one of the five
           strings "rw", "rq",  "ro",  "sw",  "xx"  (read-write,  read-write  with
           quota, read-only, swap, ignore).
    
           The  function  setfsent() opens the file when required and positions it
           at the first line.
    
           The function getfsent() parses the next line  from  the  file.   (After
           opening it when required.)
    
           The function endfsent() closes the file when required.
    
           The  function  getfsspec() searches the file from the start and returns
           the first entry found for which the  fs_spec  field  matches  the  spe-
           cial_file argument.
    
           The  function  getfsfile() searches the file from the start and returns
           the  first  entry  found  for  which  the  fs_file  field  matches  the
           mount_point argument.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           Upon  success,  the  functions getfsent(), getfsfile(), and getfsspec()
           return a pointer to a struct fstab, while setfsent() returns  1.   Upon
           failure  or  end-of-file,  these  functions  return NULL and 0, respec-
           device with a given mount point is the interesting  one,  while  getfs-
           file()  and  getfsspec()  only  return  the first occurrence, these two
           functions are not suitable for use under Linux.
