DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents the  GNU  version  of  id.   id
       prints  information  about  the given user, or the process
       running it if no user is specified.  By default, it prints
       the real user ID, real group ID, effective user ID if dif-
       ferent from the real user ID, effective group ID  if  dif-
       ferent from the real group ID, and supplemental group IDs.
       It prints each of these values preceded by a string  iden-
       tifying it and followed by the corresponding user or group
       name in parentheses.

       The options cause id to  print  only  part  of  the  above
       information.
