NAME
       getseuserbyname - get SELinux username and level for a given Linux username

SYNOPSIS
       #include <selinux/selinux.h>

       int getseuserbyname(const char *linuxuser, char **selinuxuser, char **level);

DESCRIPTION
       getseuserbyname  retrieves the SELinux username and security level associated with a given Linux username.  The
       SELinux username and security level can then be passed to other libselinux functions such  as  get_ordered_con-
       text_list_with_level and get_default_context_with_level.



       The returned SELinux username and level should be freed by the caller using free.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, 0 is returned.  On failure, -1 is returned and errno is set appropriately.

       The errors documented for the stat(2) system call are also applicable here.
