DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The logname command writes to standard output the name you
       used to log into the system.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The logname command explicitly ignores the  LOGNAME  environment
  variable to avoid erroneous results from environment

EXIT STATUS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The following exit values are returned: Successful completion.
  The getlogin() utility would fail.


       The  following  environment variables affect the execution
       of *cmd*: Provides a default value for the  internationalization
 variables that are unset or null. If LANG is unset
       or null, the corresponding value from the  default  locale
       is  used.   If  any  of the internationalization variables
       contain an invalid setting, the utility behaves as if none
       of  the variables had been defined.  If set to a non-empty
       string value, overrides the values of all the other internationalization
  variables.  Determines the locale for the
       interpretation of sequences of bytes of text data as characters
  (for  example, single-byte as opposed to multibyte
       characters in arguments).  Determines the locale  for  the
       format  and  contents  of  diagnostic  messages written to
       standard error.  Determines the location of message  catalogues
 for the processing of LC_MESSAGES.
