Perl only has concepts of effective and real user-ids (UIDs) and group-ids
(GIDs), accessible via the special variables $<, $>, $( and $). However most
modern Unix systems also have a concept of saved UIDs.
This module provides a consistent and logical interface to real, effective, and
saved UIDs and GIDs. It also provides a way to permanently drop privileges to
that of a given user, a process which $< = $> = $uid does not guarantee, and
the exact syntax of which may vary from between operating systems.
Proc::UID is also very pedantic about making sure that operations succeeded,
and checking the value which it returns for a UID/GID really is the one that's
being used. Perl may sometimes cache the values of $<, $>, $( and $), which
means they can be wrong after being changed with low-level system calls.
Proc::UID provides both a variable and function interfaces to underlying UIDs.
