User::grent(3pm)		 Perl Programmers Reference Guide		 User::grent(3pm)

NAME
       User::grent - by-name interface to Perl's built-in getgr*() functions

SYNOPSIS
	use User::grent;
	$gr = getgrgid(0) or die "No group zero";
	if ( $gr->name eq 'wheel' && @{$gr->members} > 1 ) {
	    print "gid zero name wheel, with other members";
	}

	use User::grent qw(:FIELDS;
	getgrgid(0) or die "No group zero";
	if ( $gr_name eq 'wheel' && @gr_members > 1 ) {
	    print "gid zero name wheel, with other members";
	}

	$gr = getgr($whoever);

DESCRIPTION
       This module's default exports override the core getgrent(), getgruid(), and getgrnam()
       functions, replacing them with versions that return "User::grent" objects.  This object
       has methods that return the similarly named structure field name from the C's passwd
       structure from grp.h; namely name, passwd, gid, and members (not mem).  The first three
       return scalars, the last an array reference.

       You may also import all the structure fields directly into your namespace as regular vari-
       ables using the :FIELDS import tag.  (Note that this still overrides your core functions.)
       Access these fields as variables named with a preceding "gr_".  Thus, "$group_obj->gid()"
       corresponds to $gr_gid if you import the fields.  Array references are available as regu-
       lar array variables, so "@{ $group_obj->members() }" would be simply @gr_members.

       The getpw() function is a simple front-end that forwards a numeric argument to getpwuid()
       and the rest to getpwnam().

       To access this functionality without the core overrides, pass the "use" an empty import
       list, and then access function functions with their full qualified names.  On the other
       hand, the built-ins are still available via the "CORE::" pseudo-package.

NOTE
       While this class is currently implemented using the Class::Struct module to build a
       struct-like class, you shouldn't rely upon this.
