SETRUID(3) Library Functions Manual SETRUID(3) NAME setruid, setrgid - set user and group ID LIBRARY Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS #include <sys/types.h> int setruid(uid_t ruid); int setrgid(gid_t rgid); DESCRIPTION The setruid() function (setrgid()) sets the real user ID (group ID) of the current process. RETURN VALUES Upon success, these functions return 0; otherwise -1 is returned. If the user is not the super user, or the uid specified is not the real or effective ID, these functions return -1. The use of these calls is not portable. Their use is discouraged; they will be removed in the future. SEE ALSO getgid(2), getuid(2), setegid(2), seteuid(2), setgid(2), setuid(2) HISTORY The setruid() and setrgid() syscalls appeared in 4.2BSD and were dropped in 4.4BSD.
