NAME
cuserid - get character login name of the user SYNOPSIS
#include <stdio.h> char *cuserid(char *s); DESCRIPTION
The cuserid() function generates a character-string representation of the login name under which the owner of the current process is logged in. If s is a null pointer, this representation is generated in an internal static area whose address is returned. Otherwise, s is assumed to point to an array of at least L_cuserid characters; the representation is left in this array. The constant L_cuserid is defined in the <stdio.h> header. In multithreaded applications, the caller must always supply an array s for the return value. RETURN VALUES
If the login name cannot be found, cuserid() returns a null pointer. If s is not a null pointer, the null character `' will be placed at s[0]. ATTRIBUTES

NAME
cuserid -- get user name LIBRARY
Compatibility Library (libcompat, -lcompat) SYNOPSIS
#include <stdio.h> char * cuserid(char *buf); DESCRIPTION
This interface is available from the compatibility library, libcompat and has been obsoleted by getlogin(2). The cuserid() function returns a character string representation of the user name associated with the effective user ID of the calling process. If buf is not the NULL pointer, the user name is copied into the memory referenced by buf. The argument buf is assumed to point to an array at least L_cuserid (as defined in the include file <stdio.h>) bytes long. Otherwise, the user name is copied to a static buffer. RETURN VALUES
If buf is not the NULL pointer, buf is returned; otherwise the address of the static buffer is returned. If the user name could not be determined, if buf is not the NULL pointer, the null character '' will be stored at *buf; otherwise the NULL pointer is returned. SEE ALSO
getlogin(2), getpwent(3) STANDARDS
The cuserid() function conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-1988 (``POSIX.1''). BUGS
Due to irreconcilable differences in historic implementations, cuserid() was removed from the ISO/IEC 9945-1:1990 (``POSIX.1'') standard. This implementation exists purely for compatibility with existing programs. New programs should use one of the following three alternatives to obtain the user name: 1. getlogin() to return the user's login name. 2. getpwuid(geteuid()) to return the user name associated with the calling process' effective user ID. 3. getpwuid(getuid()) to return the user name associated with the calling process' real user ID.
