pid , uid...
i got lotsa questions...
1. given the pid of a process, is it possible to know its uid and
the effective uid of a person running it ?
2. can i hide a process from getting displayed in ps ( and also
vanish from /proc )
3. if i have a process running as a user foo, then how can i make it
gain root priveleges for executing a function ? I don't want to setuid
root to a process, but in my program a small bit of code requires setuid 0
Even man pages will be nice..
