GETGID(2) Linux Programmer's Manual GETGID(2)

NAME

     getgid, getegid - get group identity

SYNOPSIS

     #include <unistd.h>
     #include <sys/types.h>
     gid_t getgid(void);
     gid_t getegid(void);

DESCRIPTION

     getgid() returns the real group ID of the calling process.
     getegid() returns the effective group ID of the calling process.

ERRORS

     These functions are always successful.

CONFORMING TO

     POSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008, 4.3BSD.

NOTES

     The  original  Linux getgid() and getegid() system calls supported only
     16-bit group IDs.  Subsequently, Linux 2.4 added getgid32()  and  gete-
     gid32(), supporting 32-bit IDs.  The glibc getgid() and getegid() wrap-
     per functions transparently deal with the variations across kernel ver-
     sions.
