LOGNAME(1)			   BSD General Commands Manual			       LOGNAME(1)

NAME
     logname -- display user's login name

SYNOPSIS
     logname

DESCRIPTION
     The logname utility writes the user's login name to standard output followed by a newline.

     The logname utility explicitly ignores the LOGNAME and USER environment variables because
     the environment cannot be trusted.

     The logname utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

SEE ALSO
     who(1), whoami(1), getlogin(2)

STANDARDS
     The logname utility conforms to IEEE Std 1003.2-1992 (``POSIX.2'').

HISTORY
     The logname command appeared in 4.4BSD.
