Here is one option I just found....

#include <pwd.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <sys/types.h>

struct passwd *getpwent(void);

struct passwd {
char *pw_name; /* user name */
char *pw_passwd; /* user password */
uid_t pw_uid; /* user id */
gid_t pw_gid; /* group id */
char *pw_gecos; /* real name */
char *pw_dir; /* home directory */
char *pw_shell; /* shell program */
};
