NAME

DESCRIPTION
     The logname utility writes the user's login name to standard output
     followed by a newline.

     The logname utility explicitly ignores the LOGNAME and USER environment
     variables because the environment cannot be trusted.

STANDARDS
     The logname utility is expected to conform to IEEE Std 1003.2
     (``POSIX.2'').

HISTORY
     The logname command appeared in 4.4BSD.

FreeBSD 11.0-PRERELEASE          June 9, 1993          FreeBSD 11.0-PRERELEASE
