Class Method Details

.Process::GID.change_privilege(integer) ⇒ Fixnum

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.

[Process.gid, Process.egid]          #=> [0, 0]
Process::GID.change_privilege(33)    #=> 33
[Process.gid, Process.egid]          #=> [33, 33]

Returns:


# File 'process.c'

static VALUE
p_gid_change_privilege(VALUE obj, VALUE id)
{
    rb_gid_t gid;

    check_gid_switch();

    gid = NUM2GIDT(id);

    if (geteuid() == 0) { /* root-user */
#if defined(HAVE_SETRESGID)
    if (setresgid(gid, gid, gid) < 0) rb_sys_fail(0);
    SAVED_GROUP_ID = gid;
#elif defined HAVE_SETGID
    if (setgid(gid) < 0) rb_sys_fail(0);
    SAVED_GROUP_ID = gid;
#elif defined(HAVE_SETREGID) && !defined(OBSOLETE_SETREGID)
    if (getgid() == gid) {
if (SAVED_GROUP_ID == gid) {
if (setregid(-1, gid) < 0) rb_sys_fail(0);
}

.egidFixnum .Process::GID.eidFixnum .Process::Sys.geteidFixnum

Returns the effective group ID for this process. Not available on all platforms.

Process.egid   #=> 500

Overloads:


# File 'process.c'

static VALUE
proc_getegid(VALUE obj)
{
    rb_gid_t egid = getegid();

    return GIDT2NUM(egid);
}

.Process::GID.grant_privilege(integer) ⇒ Fixnum .Process::GID.eid( = integer) ⇒ Fixnum

Set the effective group ID, and if possible, the saved group ID of the process to the given integer. Returns the new effective group ID. Not available on all platforms.

[Process.gid, Process.egid]          #=> [0, 0]
Process::GID.grant_privilege(31)     #=> 33
[Process.gid, Process.egid]          #=> [0, 33]

Overloads:

  • .Process::GID.grant_privilege(integer) ⇒ Fixnum

    Returns:

  • .Process::GID.eid( = integer) ⇒ Fixnum

    Returns:


# File 'process.c'

static VALUE

{
    rb_setegid_core(NUM2GIDT(id));
    return id;
}

.Process::GID.re_exchangeFixnum

Exchange real and effective group IDs and return the new effective group ID. Not available on all platforms.

[Process.gid, Process.egid]   #=> [0, 33]
Process::GID.re_exchange      #=> 0
[Process.gid, Process.egid]   #=> [33, 0]

Returns:


# File 'process.c'

static VALUE
p_gid_exchange(VALUE obj)
{
    rb_gid_t gid, egid;

    check_gid_switch();

    gid = getgid();
    egid = getegid();

#if defined(HAVE_SETRESGID)
    if (setresgid(egid, gid, gid) < 0) rb_sys_fail(0);
    SAVED_GROUP_ID = gid;
#elif defined(HAVE_SETREGID) && !defined(OBSOLETE_SETREGID)
    if (setregid(egid,gid) < 0) rb_sys_fail(0);
    SAVED_GROUP_ID = gid;
#else
    rb_notimplement();
#endif
    return GIDT2NUM(gid);
}

.Process::GID.re_exchangeable?Boolean

Returns true if the real and effective group IDs of a process may be exchanged on the current platform.

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

# File 'process.c'

static VALUE
p_gid_exchangeable(void)
{
#if defined(HAVE_SETRESGID)
    return Qtrue;
#elif defined(HAVE_SETREGID) && !defined(OBSOLETE_SETREGID)
    return Qtrue;
#else
    return Qfalse;
#endif
}

.gidFixnum .Process::GID.ridFixnum .Process::Sys.getgidFixnum

Returns the (real) group ID for this process.

Process.gid   #=> 500

Overloads:


# File 'process.c'

static VALUE
proc_getgid(VALUE obj)
{
    rb_gid_t gid = getgid();
    return GIDT2NUM(gid);
}

.Process::GID.sid_available?Boolean

Returns true if the current platform has saved group ID functionality.

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

# File 'process.c'

static VALUE
p_gid_have_saved_id(void)
{
#if defined(HAVE_SETRESGID) || defined(HAVE_SETEGID) || defined(_POSIX_SAVED_IDS)
    return Qtrue;
#else
    return Qfalse;
#endif
}

.Process::GID.switchFixnum .Process::GID.switch { ... } ⇒ Object

Switch the effective and real group IDs of the current process. If a block is given, the group IDs will be switched back after the block is executed. Returns the new effective group ID if called without a block, and the return value of the block if one is given.

Overloads:


# File 'process.c'

static VALUE
p_gid_switch(VALUE obj)
{
rb_gid_t gid, egid;

check_gid_switch();

gid = getgid();

if (rb_block_given_p()) {
    under_gid_switch = 1;
    return rb_ensure(rb_yield, Qnil, p_gid_sw_ensure, SAVED_GROUP_ID);
}
