sudoscriptd sudoscriptd
creates a named pipe (FIFO) in a spool area, and hangs around waiting
for someone to write to it. When output is received, it is timestamped
and placed in a log file in /var/log. The size of the data received is
monitored. When the size of the log plus the size of the data exceed
2MB, the log is rotated and gzipped in a subprocess. At most 10 logs
are kept hanging around. Multiple processes can write to the fifo at

sudoshell Sudo is a tool used for running programs with root privilege. Its
major benefit is the audit trail it provides, as it logs each
invocation with the command name, its arguments and the user who ran
it. Because this audit trail is lost if a user runs a shell (e.g. bash
or csh) with sudo, many sites restrict sudo to not allow such
usage. Since this can cause problems, (see L<SUDO AND SHELLS>) many
users prefer to retain the root pas...
