I don't know if it's the worst poll ever, but given the options, the coin, being the most versatile, should be the obvious winner. The poll seems stacked heavily in it's favor.

    [davido]: I am not finding closing STDIN to be an adequate means of making getlogin return undef.
    [Corion]: Maybe doing a double-fork (daemonizing) can make go that information away, but maybe not
    [Corion]: But I think my knowledge of unix/Linux datastructures is several decades out of date, so I don't really know what information it keeps on processes
    [oiskuu]: The useful bits that relate to your process can be found under /proc/self. What information are you thinking of? Tty name?
    [tye]: I just daemonized and getlogin() still knew who I had been.
    [tye]: perhaps loginuid ? Not that I concede that something not being in /proc means it is not useful.
