in reply to Programmers are weird

We often operate like the machines we use... Ask a busy programmer a question and it can be minutes before the programmer context switches and replies to the question.

Frequently heard in my house...

wifey: Honey? Can you help me with something?

Steve_p: Yeah...just a minute

[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[Corion]: But I think my knowledge of unix/Linux datastructures is several decades out of date, so I don't really know what information it keeps on processes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.
