SYNOPSIS#define _GNU_SOURCE /* See feature_test_macros(7) */
int getresuid(uid_t *ruid, uid_t *euid, uid_t *suid);
int getresgid(gid_t *rgid, gid_t *egid, gid_t *sgid);
DESCRIPTIONgetresuid() returns the real UID, the effective UID, and the saved set-user-ID of the calling process, in the arguments ruid, euid, and suid, respectively. getresgid() performs the analogous task for the process's group IDs.
RETURN VALUEOn success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.
- One of the arguments specified an address outside the calling program's address space.
VERSIONSThese system calls appeared on Linux starting with kernel 2.1.44.
The prototypes are given by glibc since version 2.3.2, provided _GNU_SOURCE is defined.
