       putgrent - write a group database entry to a file

SYNOPSIS

       #define _GNU_SOURCE         /* See feature_test_macros(7) */
       #include <grp.h>

       int putgrent(const struct group *grp, FILE *stream);

DESCRIPTION

       The  putgrent()  function  is  the  counterpart for fgetgrent(3).  The function writes the
       content of the provided struct group into the stream.  The list of group members  must  be
       NULL-terminated or NULL-initialized.

       The struct group is defined as follows:

           struct group {
               char   *gr_name;      /* group name */
               char   *gr_passwd;    /* group password */
               gid_t   gr_gid;       /* group ID */
               char  **gr_mem;       /* group members */
           };

RETURN VALUE

       The function returns zero on success, and a nonzero value on error.
