Raku port of Perl's getgrnam() and associated built-ins
use P5getgrnam; my @result = getgrnam(~$*USER);
This module tries to mimic the behaviour of Perl's
getgrnam and associated built-ins as closely as possible in the Raku Programming Language.
endgrent getgrent getgrgid getgrnam setgrent
getgrnam NAME getgrgid GID getgrent setgrent endgrent These routines are the same as their counterparts in the system C library. In list context, the return values from the various get routines are as follows: # 0 1 2 3 4 ( $name, $passwd, $gid, $members ) = getgr* In scalar context, you get the name, unless the function was a lookup by name, in which case you get the other thing, whatever it is. (If the entry doesn't exist you get the undefined value.) For example: $gid = getgrnam($name); $name = getgrgid($num); The $members value returned by getgr*() is a space-separated list of the login names of the members of the group.
This module depends on the availability of POSIX semantics. This is generally not available on Windows, so this module will probably not work on Windows.
