In the meantime you could create something like the /bin/sh you get on a debian root disk (busybox)...

With busybox you get one executable file and a load of symlinks... the name of the program ($0) it is invoked with determines what it does (limited ls, cat, mknod etc...)

why not physically move all of your dodgy files (lynx, curl, wget etc) into a /usr/local/wtools folder and put your perl script in /usr/local/bin and have symlinks to it called (lynx, curl, wget etc)... then you get all your logging immediately and they needn't know.

You can even set the ground rules by doing the chown on both files but leaving o+x on the perl script and chmod setgrpid on it so it works... once you've got your list of users and reasons and you've added them to the group you can un-chmod setgrpid the perl wrapper program...

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
