SYNOPSIS

  whoami

DESCRIPTION

  The whoami command displays the username associated with your current ID.

  Unlike who am i, this command tells you what your effective user ID is, and
  not who is logged on to your tty (it does not use /var/adm/utmp).

  If the current user ID is not in the password file, the message Intruder
  alert is displayed.

FILES

  /etc/passwd
	     Contains usernames and IDs.
