NAME

P5getgrnam - Implement Perl 5's getgrnam() and associated built-ins

SYNOPSIS

use P5getgrnam;

my @result = getgrnam(~$*USER);

DESCRIPTION

This module tries to mimic the behaviour of the getgrnam and associated functions of Perl 5 as closely as possible. It exports:

endgrent getgrent getgrgid getgrnam setgrent

ORIGINAL PERL 5 DOCUMENTATION

getgrnam NAME
getgrgid GID
getgrent
setgrent
endgrent
        These routines are the same as their counterparts in the system C
        library. In list context, the return values from the various get
        routines are as follows:

         # 0        1          2           3         4
         ( $name,   $passwd,   $gid,       $members  ) = getgr*

        In scalar context, you get the name, unless the function was a
        lookup by name, in which case you get the other thing, whatever it
        is. (If the entry doesn't exist you get the undefined value.) For
        example:

            $gid   = getgrnam($name);
            $name  = getgrgid($num);

        The $members value returned by getgr*() is a space-separated list
        of the login names of the members of the group.
