Hi David

I'm trying to set up a mechanism to copy a local file using a setuid 
executable, based on whether the registered user has read access to the local 
file in question.  Is there any means for a tool to know the registered user 
who is running it?



you can use the variable "$userEmail" in the tool definition file


something like this

  <command>your_tool.pl $input $userEmail $output </command>


and then it is down to your tool (or the wrapper you have written) to deal with the user's e-mail and do different thing depending on the user.


Hope this helps,

Regards, Hans
