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, 4.3BSD.

NOTES
       The  original  Linux  getgid() and getegid() system calls supported only 16-bit group IDs.
       Subsequently, Linux 2.4 added getgid32() and  getegid32(),  supporting  32-bit  IDs.   The
       glibc  getgid()  and  getegid()  wrapper  functions transparently deal with the variations
       across kernel versions.

SEE ALSO
       getresgid(2), setgid(2), setregid(2), credentials(7)
