    Command:

    personality

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <sys/personality.h>
    
           int personality(unsigned long persona);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Linux  supports different execution domains, or personalities, for each
           process.  Among other things, execution domains tell Linux how  to  map
           signal numbers into signal actions.  The execution domain system allows
           Linux to provide limited support  for  binaries  compiled  under  other
           UNIX-like operating systems.
    
           This function will return the current personality() when persona equals
           0xffffffff.  Otherwise, it will make the execution domain referenced by
           persona the new execution domain of the calling process.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           On  success,  the  previous  persona  is  returned.   On  error,  -1 is
           returned, and errno is set appropriately.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

           EINVAL The kernel was unable to change the personality.
    
    
    

    CONFORMING TO

           personality() is Linux-specific and should  not  be  used  in  programs
           intended to be portable.
