Converts from an operating-system-independent network name to a domain-specific user number (UID).
C Library (libc.a)
netname2user (name, uidp, gidp, gidlenp, gidlist) char *name; int *uidp; int *gidp; int *gidlenp; int *gidlist;
The netname2user subroutine converts from an operating-system-independent network name to a domain-specific UID. This subroutine is the inverse of the user2netname subroutine.
|name||Points to the network name (or netname) of the server process owner. The name parameter can be either the host name derived from the host2netname subroutine or the user name derived from the user2netname subroutine.|
|uidp||Points to the user ID.|
|gidp||Points to the group ID.|
|gidlenp||Points to the size of the group ID.|
|gidlist||Points to the group list.|
Upon successful completion, this subroutine returns a value of 1. If unsuccessful, it returns a value of 0.
This subroutine is part of Base Operating System (BOS) Runtime.
The host2netname subroutine, user2netname subroutine.
