Using the struct cmsgcred in practice

have found using it (via Google) is in PostgreSQL, but it's abstracted through 
multiple layers (the server code, in any case -- the client code is quite 

Would anybody be able to give me tips on what to send to the client to request 
the data? I've been able to find the code to read the code from the client and 
to get the client to send the response to the server. But any simple 
client/server someone could hack up demonstrating this principle solely (or 
software package that's more straightforward and less abstracted that 
PostgreSQL) would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
