GETUSER(2)                                             GETUSER(2)

     NAME
          getuser, sysname - get user or system name

     SYNOPSIS
          #include <u.h>
          #include <libc.h>

          char*     getuser(void)

          char*     sysname(void)

     DESCRIPTION
          Getuser returns a pointer to static data which contains the
          null-terminated name of the user who owns the current pro-
          cess.  Getuser reads /dev/user to find the name.

          Sysname provides the same service for the file #c/sysname,
          which contains the name of the machine.  Unlike getuser,
          sysname caches the string, reading the file only once.
