GETUID(1)                                               GETUID(1)

     NAME
          getuid, id - get user identity

     SYNOPSIS
          getuid [ - ] [ arguments ]

          id

     DESCRIPTION
          Getuid prints on its standard output information about its
          invoker, based on the effective user id, as presented in the
          password file.  With no arguments, getuid prints the login
          id of its invoker.  Arguments select which information to
          print:

               user    login id
               group   group id
               passwd  encrypted password
               uid     numerical user id
               gid     numerical group id
               acct    GCOS account number
               bin     GCOS output bin
               home    home directory
               shell   default shell

          If the optional - or more than one argument is present, the
          information is displayed in the form

               user=name

          as suitable for setting environment variables in the shell.

          Id prints the effective userid and groupid numerically, and,
          if possible, textually

     FILES
          /etc/passwd
          /etc/group

     BUGS
          Getuid reports the default group for the user, not the cur-
          rent effective group id.
          The login id reported is the first one in the password file
          with the correct numerical user id, not necessarily the
          login for the current session.
