GETRESUID(2)               Linux Programmer's Manual              GETRESUID(2)



NAME
       getresuid, getresgid - get real, effective and saved user/group IDs

SYNOPSIS
       #define _GNU_SOURCE
       #include <unistd.h>

       int getresuid(uid_t *ruid, uid_t *euid, uid_t *suid);
       int getresgid(gid_t *rgid, gid_t *egid, gid_t *sgid);

DESCRIPTION
       getresuid()  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 VALUE
       On success, zero is returned.  On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS
       EFAULT One of the arguments specified an address outside the calling program's address space.

VERSIONS
       These 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.

CONFORMING TO
       These calls are non-standard; they also appear on HP-UX and some of the BSDs.
