Thanks for the link! I had read this before, but it was worth revisiting. I especially like McConnell's distinction between long and short-term debt.

This is basically the kind of thing I'm looking for, but I'd like to see more details. In other words, more analogies between financial and development concepts.

As soon as I have the spare cycles, I'm going to write up a hypothetical project scenario, and explore some of the equations that whakka proposed. I think that a narrative might be easier for me to understand than a formal model.

[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. stackexchange.com/ 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?
