Process::Sys

The Process::Sys module contains UID and GID functions which provide direct bindings to the system calls of the same names instead of the more-portable versions of the same functionality found in the Process, Process::UID, and Process::GID modules.

Public Class Methods

egid => fixnum click to toggle source
Process::GID.eid => fixnum
Process::Sys.geteid => fixnum

Returns the effective group ID for this process. Not available on all platforms.

               static VALUE

    VALUE obj;
{

    return INT2FIX(egid);
}

Process::Sys.issetugid => true or false click to toggle source

Returns true if the process was created as a result of an execve(2) system call which had either of the setuid or setgid bits set (and extra privileges were given as a result) or if it has changed any of its real, effective or saved user or group IDs since it began execution.
