uid_t audit_getloginuid(void);
 

DESCRIPTION

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.
