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	 gete-
       gid32(),	supporting 32-bit IDs.	The glibc getgid() and getegid() wrap-
       per functions transparently deal	with the variations across kernel ver-
       sions.
