NAME
       hal-is-caller-privileged - determine if a caller is privileged

SYNOPSIS
       hal-is-caller-privileged [options]

DESCRIPTION
       hal-is-caller-privileged  determines  if a specific caller is privileged for a given Poli-
       cyKit action on given device. For more information about both the  big  picture,  HAL  and
       PolicyKit    ,	 refer	  to	the    HAL    spec     (which	 can	be    found    in
       /usr/local/share/doc/hal/spec/hal-spec.html depending on the distribution)  and	also  the
       PolicyKit documentation.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       --udi  The UDI (Unique Device Identifier) of the device object.

       --action
	      PolicyKit action to check for.

       --caller
	      The unique D-Bus name on the system bus of the caller.

       --help Print out usage.

       --version
	      Print the version.

RETURN VALUE
       If  an  error  occurs  this program exits with a non-zero exit code. Otherwise the textual
       reply will be printed on stdout and this program will exit with exit code 0.  Unprivileged
       callers (e.g. with a non-zero uid) can only ask about callers/processes that matches their
       own uid.

BUGS
       Please send bug	reports  to  either  the  distribution	or  the  HAL  mailing  list,  see
       http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/hal on how to subscribe.
