SYNOPSIS
       #include <stdio.h>

       fgetgrent(): _SVID_SOURCE

DESCRIPTION
       The  fgetgrent()  function  returns a pointer to a structure containing
       the group information from the file referred to by 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/group (see group(5)).

       The group structure is defined in <grp.h> 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  fgetgrent()  function  returns  a pointer to a group structure, or
       NULL if there are no more entries or an error occurs.

ERRORS
       ENOMEM Insufficient memory to allocate group structure.

CONFORMING TO
       SVr4.
