( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I have a daemon running on Solaris/Linux boxes -- it runs as root, and accepts script(s) from users and runs it under that user's uid by changing $> and $<. ( Security isn't a concern, for now ). Here's a pseudocode:

daemon loop: while .... { if( job ) { $pid = fork(); if( child ) { $> = job->uid; $< = job->uid; run script exit ; } } }

If you just use %ENV that's available through the daemon, it will show %ENV of the root user. What I want to do is to pull the user's environment variables before running the script.

Is there anyway to do this?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
