Extracting Files by User ID: (-o uid)

You can also specify the owner by the decimal identifier derived from the uid value in the /etc/passwd file. The decimal value is used less often than the other forms of the -o option. This command line will extract all files owned by the user with user ID 112:

bru -xv -o 112

In some circumstances, it is possible for files to have user ID numbers that do not match any user listed in the /etc/passwd file.
