[Vamsee Lakamsani] | I can use ange-ftp to write/save files as another user (different from | my login ID) but is there some way to execute shell commands as another | user? When I do 'M-x shell-command' in a ange-ftped buffer the commands | are not executed with the other user's permissions and it would be nice | to be able to do so. Please email any suggestions. [Radey Shouman] | Here is a little package I have been using to provide an ange-ftp'ified | shell-command. Not much documentation, but then its not very | complicated. | | Will efs provide anything like this? you should investigate the SITE EXEC command available in some FTP daemons. best regards, </erik> -- Erik Naggum <email@example.com> <SGML@ifi.uio.no> | memento, terrigena.
