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 simply:

            # 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.
