in thread Subscribing to a thread?

That would be great, but probably difficult/impossible. You could try hacking at mozilla or the beta perl web browser I saw metioned on this site a while back called artemis. If you could add some special tags/cookie ability to one of those, then submit a patch to vroom to get the perlmonks system to detect the ability and call it if availible....

But yeah it would be very nice if it could work like you say.

[Corion]: Ah - if that information is saved in a file, then you could theoretically spam that file and confuse getlogin(). So, don't use it for authentication :)
[tye]: that is what getlogin() certainly *used* to do. I don't believe that is what it certainly should do.
[davido]: /var/run/utmp is 664 i think.
[tye]: Note that my "man getlogin" says that it uses stdin when it should use /dev/tty (calling a glibc bug). But that does not appear to be the case when I test it. But maybe Perl's getlogin() is not using glibc's getlogin().
[oiskuu]: well, run a strace and see what the getlogin does for you.... As I said. SELinux probably has those security labels. But not regular linux.
[tye]: for example, read https://unix. questions/146138/ loginuid-should-be -allowed-to-change -or-not-mutable-or -not
[tye]: I'm not using SELinux and it certainly appears to disagree with you. shrug
[tye]: Since you brought up /proc, oiskuu, I didn't see you respond to my suggestion of 'loginuid'. Does your /proc not have such?
