Who is running my program? - PERL Beginners

    Subject: Who is running my program?

    I am writing a perl program to access client information for reading,
    writing, and updating.

    I only want superuser to be able to do the writes and updates, though,
    while all other accepted gpg users can read the information.

    Is there an easy way to check which user is running your scripts?

    Thank you.

    Plus it's usualy not set under Win9x. (Not sure about Win ME)

    If you are under Windows

    use Win32;
    $username = Win32::LoginName();
