Process::GID

The Process::GID module contains a collection of module functions which can be used to portably get, set, and switch the current process's real, effective, and saved group IDs.

Public Class Methods

Process::GID.change_privilege(integer) → fixnum click to toggle source

Change the current process’s real and effective group ID to that specified by integer. Returns the new group ID. Not available on all platforms.
