NAME         top

       projid - the project name mapping file

DESCRIPTION         top

       The /etc/projid file provides a mapping between numeric project
       identifiers and a simple human readable name (similar relationship to
       the one that exists between usernames and uids).  Its format is

            # comments are hash-prefixed
            # ...

       This file is optional, if a project identifier cannot be mapped to a
       name, it will be parsed and displayed as a numeric value.
