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

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

    return UIDT2NUM(uid);
}
            
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.

 
               static VALUE
p_sys_issetugid(VALUE obj)
{
    rb_secure(2);
    if (issetugid()) {
        return Qtrue;

        return Qfalse;
    }
}
            
Process::Sys.setegid(integer) → nil click to toggle source

Set the effective group ID of the calling process to integer. Not available on all platforms.

 
               static VALUE
p_sys_setegid(VALUE obj, VALUE id)
{
    check_gid_switch();
    if (setegid(NUM2GIDT(id)) != 0) rb_sys_fail(0);
    return Qnil;
}
            
Process::Sys.seteuid(integer) → nil click to toggle source

Set the effective user ID of the calling process to integer. Not available on all platforms.

 
               static VALUE
p_sys_seteuid(VALUE obj, VALUE id)
{
    check_uid_switch();
    if (seteuid(NUM2UIDT(id)) != 0) rb_sys_fail(0);
    return Qnil;

}
            
Process::Sys.setregid(rid, eid) → nil click to toggle source

Sets the (integer) real and/or effective group IDs of the current process to rid and eid, respectively. A value of -1 for either means to leave that ID unchanged. Not available on all platforms.

Process::Sys.setresgid(rid, eid, sid) → nil click to toggle source

Sets the (integer) real, effective, and saved user IDs of the current process to rid, eid, and sid respectively. A value of -1 for any value means to leave that ID unchanged. Not available on all platforms.

}
            
Process::Sys.setresuid(rid, eid, sid) → nil click to toggle source

Sets the (integer) real, effective, and saved user IDs of the current process to rid, eid, and sid respectively. A value of -1 for any value means to leave that ID unchanged. Not available on all platforms.

 
               static VALUE

    return Qnil;
}
            
Process::Sys.setreuid(rid, eid) → nil click to toggle source

Sets the (integer) real and/or effective user IDs of the current process to rid and eid, respectively. A value of -1 for either means to leave that ID unchanged. Not available on all platforms.

 
               static VALUE
p_sys_setreuid(VALUE obj, VALUE rid, VALUE eid)
{
    check_uid_switch();

    return Qnil;
}
