  •    C++

If you're creating a reusable module you should probably use passwd-user instead, as it shells out rather than using a native binding.getpwuid() is a POSIX function and won't work on Windows.

  •    C++

A drop-in replacement for the Node.js modules process, fs and posix providing their POSIX functionality on both POSIX and Windows platforms. Node.js exposes POSIX APIs, among the others. Some of them are implemented on Windows, some are not. When writing a cross-platform code, the latter must be wrapped by additional code, because the Node.js built-ins do not offer a cross-platform feature.
