FBB::User(3bobcat)	     /etc/passwd user info	    FBB::User(3bobcat)

NAME
       FBB::User - Provides the	/etc/passwd info of the	current	user

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<bobcat/user>
       Linking option: -lbobcat

DESCRIPTION
       This  class  retrieves  the  information	 of  the current user from the
       information in /etc/passwd. The class is	a simple wrapper class	around
       the getpwent(3) function.

NAMESPACE
       FBB
       All  constructors,  members,  operators	and manipulators, mentioned in
       this man-page, are defined in the namespace FBB.

INHERITS FROM
       -

CONSTRUCTORS
       o      User():
	      The default constructor  determines  the	current	 user's	 data.
	      This  constructor	 throws	 an  Exception exception if it did not
	      properly complete	because	the current user  name	could  not  be
	      found in /etc/passwd.  The copy and move constructors are	avail-
	      able.

OVERLOADED OPERATORS
       The copy	and move assignment operators are available.

MEMBER FUNCTIONS
       o      size_t eGroupid()	const:
	      Returns the user's effective group-id.

       o      size_t eUserid() const:
	      Returns the user's effective user-id.

       o      size_t groupid() const:
	      Returns the user's group-id.

       o      std::string homedir() const:
	      Returns the user's home directory	(including a trailing /).

       o      bool inGroup(size_t gid, bool useEffective = true) const:
	      Returns true if the current user is a member of group gid,  oth-
	      erwise  false is returned. The user's effective group id is also
	      checked if useEffective is specified as true (which is  provided
	      as default function argument).

       o      std::string name() const:
	      Returns the user's user-name.

       o      std::string password() const:
	      Returns  the  user's  encrypted  password. But see also the BUGS
	      section.

       o      std::string realname() const:
	      Returns the user's real name, as	listed	in  the	 /etc/passwd's
	      gecos field.

       o      std::string shell() const:
	      Returns the user's shell.

       o      size_t userid() const:
	      Returns the user's user-id.

EXAMPLE
       #include	<bobcat/user>
       #include	<iostream>

       using namespace std;
       using namespace FBB;

       int main()
       {
	   User	 user;

	   cout	<< "\n"
	       "name	   : " << user.name()	   << "\n" <<
	       "password   : " << user.password()  << "\n" <<
	       "user id	   : " << user.userid()	   << "\n" <<
	       "group id   : " << user.groupid()   << "\n" <<
	       "real name  : " << user.realname()  << "\n" <<
	       "home dir   : " << user.homedir()   << "\n" <<
	       "shell	   : " << user.shell()	   << "\n" << endl;
       }

BUGS
       If the user is a	member of multiple groups, only	the group id listed in
       /etc/passwd is returned by groupid().

       If shadow passwording is	used, the string returned by  password()  will
       probably	not contain the	encrypted password.
