DESCRIPTION

The setregid() function sets the real group ID of the current process to the value specified by the rgid parameter, and sets the effective group ID to the value specified by the egid parameter. If the value of rgid is -1, the real group ID is not changed; if the value of egid is -1, the effective group ID is not changed. The real and effective group IDs may be set to different values in the same call.

Unprivileged users may change the effective group ID to the real group ID; only the superuser may make other changes.

Any supplementary group IDs of the calling process remain unchanged.  

RETURN VALUES

Upon successful completion, a value of 0 (zero) is returned. Otherwise, a value of -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.  

ERRORS

The setregid() function sets errno to the specified values for the following conditions:

The value of the rgid egid parameter is invalid or out of range. The current process does not have superuser privilege and a change other than changing the effective group ID to the real group ID was specified.
