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.
