Syntax

       utmp_register  [-ADUWe]  [-h  host] [-l user] [-p id1] [-s id2] [-t tty] [-u utmpfile] [-w
       wtmpfile]

Description

       utmp_register is a helper program for programs which do  not  want  to  do  the  UTMP/WTMP
       handling within themselves.

Options

       -A     Add entry.

       -D     Delete entry.

       -U     Perform operation on the utmp file.

       -W     Perform operation on the wtmp file.

       -e     Encode PID into the "ut_id" field.

       -h host
              Host field.

       -l user
              User field.

       -t tty TTY field.

       -p pid Unique ID 1

       -s session
              Unique ID 2.

       -u file
              Path to the utmp file, defaults to /var/run/utmp.

       -w file
              Path to wtmp file, defaults to /var/log/wtmp.

       -A and -D can be specified together, in which case an entry is added and instantly removed
       again (utmp), or a login of duration zero is recorded (wtmp).
