- viewsudo [-g groupname|#gid] [-u username|#uid] command
another user in View-OS.
viewsudo accepts the following command line options:
- Normally, viewsudo sets the primary group to root. The -g option causes sudo to run the specified command with the primary group set to group. To specify a gid instead of a group name, use #gid. When running commands as a gid, many shells require that the ’#’ be escaped with a backslash (’’). If no -u option is specified, the command will be run as the invoking user (not root). In either case, the primary group will be set to group.
- The -u option causes viewsudo to run the specified command as a user other than root. To specify a uid instead of a user name, use #uid. When running commands as a uid, many shells require that the ’#’ be escaped with a backslash (’’).
RETURN VALUESUpon successful execution of a program, the exit status from viewsudo will simply be the exit status of the program that was executed.
