       userattr_t *getuserattr(void);

       userattr_t *getusernam(const char *name);

       userattr_t *getuseruid(uid_t uid);

       void free_userattr(userattr_t *userattr);

       The getuserattr(), getusernam(), and getuseruid() functions each return
       a  user_attr(4)	entry. Entries can come from any of the sources speci‐
       fied in the nsswitch.conf(4) file. The getuserattr()  function  enumer‐
       ates  user_attr	entries.  The  getusernam()  function  searches	 for a
       user_attr entry with a given user name name. The getuseruid()  function
       searches	 for  a	 user_attr  entry with a given user ID uid. Successive
       calls to these functions return either successive user_attr entries  or

       The  fgetuserattr()  function  does not use nsswitch.conf but reads and
       parses the next line from the stream f. This stream is assumed to  have
       the format of the user_attr files.

       The  free_userattr() function releases memory allocated by the getuser‐
       nam(), getuserattr(), and fgetuserattr() functions.

       The internal representation of a user_attr entry is a userattr_t struc‐
       ture defined in <user_attr.h> with the following members:

	 char  *name;	    /* name of the user */
	 char  *qualifier;  /* reserved for future use */
	 char  *res1;	    /* reserved for future use */
	 char  *res2;	    /* reserved for future use */
	 kva_t *attr;	    /* list of attributes */

       The  setuserattr()  function "rewinds" to the beginning of the enumera‐
       tion of user_attr entries.  Calls to getusernam() may leave the enumer‐
       ation  in  an  indeterminate  state,  so setuserattr() should be called
       before the first call to getuserattr().

       The enduserattr() function may be called	 to  indicate  that  user_attr
       processing  is  complete; the library may then close any open user_attr
       file, deallocate any internal storage, and so forth.

       The getuserattr() function returns a pointer to a userattr_t if it suc‐
       cessfully  enumerates  an  entry; otherwise it returns NULL, indicating
       the end of the enumeration.

       The getusernam() function returns a pointer to a userattr_t if it  suc‐
       cessfully locates the requested entry; otherwise it returns NULL.

       The  getuserattr()  and getusernam() functions both allocate memory for
       the pointers they return. This memory should be	deallocated  with  the
       free_userattr() function.

       Individual  attributes can be referenced in the attr structure by call‐
       ing the kva_match(3SECDB) function.

       Because the list of legal keys is likely to expand, code	 must be writ‐
       ten to ignore unknown key-value pairs without error.
