NAME         top

       audit_getloginuid - Get a program's login session id value

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <libaudit.h>

       uin32_t audit_get_session(void);

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function returns the task's session id attribute.

RETURN VALUE         top

       This function returns the session id value if it was set. It will
       return a -1 if the session id is unset. However, since uint32_t is an
       unsigned type, you will see the converted value instead of -1.

ERRORS         top

       This function returns -2 on failure. Additionally, in the event of a
       real error, errno would be set. The function can set errno based on
       failures of open, read, or strtoul.
