audit_getloginuid — Get a program's loginuid value


#include <libaudit.h>

uid_t audit_getloginuid(void);


This function returns the task attribute loginuid.

Return Value

This function returns the loginuid value if it was set. It will return a -1 if loginuid was unset. However, since uid_t is an unsigned type, you will see the converted value instead of -1.


This function returns -1 on failure. However, in the event of a real error, errno would be set. The function can set errno based on failures of open, read, or strtoul.
