It is available on all \UNIX{} versions. Password database entries are reported as 7-tuples containing the following items from the password database (see \file{}), in order: \code{pw_name}, \code{pw_passwd}, \code{pw_uid}, \code{pw_gid}, \code{pw_gecos}, \code{pw_dir}, \code{pw_shell}. The uid and gid items are integers, all others are strings. An exception is raised if the entry asked for cannot be found. It defines the following items: \renewcommand{\indexsubitem}{(in module pwd)} \begin{funcdesc}{getpwuid}{uid} Return the password database entry for the given numeric user ID. \end{funcdesc} \begin{funcdesc}{getpwnam}{name} Return the password database entry for the given user name. \end{funcdesc} \begin{funcdesc}{getpwall}{} Return a list of all available password database entries, in arbitrary order. \end{funcdesc}

Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
