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

Thank you both!

I think this is what I'm going to do:

use Env; ## uid = 0 at this point. ## delete root's env foreach my $key ( keys %ENV ) { delete $ENV{ $key }; } ## set standard PATH, apparently some scripts ## rely on this $ENV{ PATH } = '/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/ucb'; $> = $target_uid; $< = $target_uid; my( $shell, $home ) = ( getpwuid( $> ) ) [ 7, 8 ]; $ENV{ HOME } = $home; my $env_str = qx/exec $shell -c env/; # now parse

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.
