Convert a username/group name to a uid/gid number

branch: master
README.md

Use this module to convert a username/groupname to a uid/gid number.

Usage:

npm install uid-number

Then, in your node program:

var uidNumber = require("uid-number")
uidNumber("isaacs", function (er, uid, gid) {
  // gid is null because we didn't ask for a group name
  // uid === 24561 because that's my number.
})
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
