This manual page documents briefly the cvssh command.

This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page, but a documentation in the code.

cvssh formely called grap or graplite is a wrapper designed to verify commands before passing them to system() or just reporting the accepted command. cvssh will report an error if the input is invalid. It checks for string lengths (prevent overflows), specific sets of options and commands.


These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.
  cvssh, in full force, is called as: <cvssh> <option> "<command> <arguments list ... >" where <cvssh> is this program, <option> is an optional trap for a single option (like "-e" or "-c" used by programs that call shells, subject to the approval list below), <command> is the command wished to be run (subject to the approval list below), and <arguments list .. > is the list of args passed to <command> All are optional, allowing for forms such as: cvssh -e "foo" cvssh "foo bar" cvssh -e "foo -c foo -f bar" <g ><o ><cmd> <g > <cmd/args> <g ><o> <cmd/ args >
  <options> and <command> need to be exact matched to those in the acceptance list.

Accepted commands.
