Iseve returns true if the current user is eve. Several drivers use iseve to check the caller's identity before granting permission to perform certain actions. For example, the console driver allows only the user eve to write a new identity into the /dev/user file. The privileges are strictly local and do not extend into the network (in particular, to file servers).
Note that the comparison performed by iseve is case-sensitive, even when running hosted on systems where usernames are case-insensitive.
