Description

RBASH(1)                    General Commands Manual                   RBASH(1)



NAME
       rbash - restricted bash, see bash(1)

SYNOPSIS
       rbash

RESTRICTED SHELL
       If bash is started with the name rbash, or the -r option is supplied at
       invocation, the shell becomes restricted.  A restricted shell  is  used
       to  set  up an environment more controlled than the standard shell.  It
       behaves identically to bash with the exception that the  following  are
       disallowed or not performed:

       o      changing directories with cd

       o      setting or unsetting the values of SHELL, PATH, ENV, or BASH_ENV

       o      specifying command names containing /

       o      specifying  a  file  name containing a / as an argument to the .
              builtin command

       o      Specifying a filename containing a slash as an argument  to  the
              -p option to the hash builtin command

       o      importing  function  definitions  from  the shell environment at
              startup

       o      parsing the value of SHELLOPTS from  the  shell  environment  at
              startup

       o      redirecting output using the >, >|, <>, >&, &>, and >> redirect-
              ion operators

       o      using the exec builtin command to replace the shell with another
              command

       o      adding  or  deleting builtin commands with the -f and -d options
              to the enable builtin command

       o      Using the  enable  builtin  command  to  enable  disabled  shell
              builtins

       o      specifying the -p option to the command builtin command

       o      turning off restricted mode with set +r or set +o restricted.

       These restrictions are enforced after any startup files are read.

       When a command that is found to be a shell script is executed (see COM-
       MAND EXECUTION under bash(1)), rbash turns off any restrictions in  the
       shell spawned to execute the script.

BUG REPORTS
       If you find a bug in bash, you should report it.  But first, you should
       make sure that it really is a bug, and that it appears  in  the  latest
       version   of  bash.   The  latest  version  is  always  available  from
       ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/bash/.

       Once you have determined that a bug actually exists,  use  the  bashbug
       command  to submit a bug report.  If you have a fix, you are encouraged
       to mail that as well!  Suggestions and `philosophical' bug reports  may
       be  mailed  to  bug-bash@gnu.org  or  posted  to  the  Usenet newsgroup
       gnu.bash.bug.

       ALL bug reports should include:

       The version number of bash
       The hardware and operating system
       The compiler used to compile
       A description of the bug behaviour
       A short script or `recipe' which exercises the bug

       Comments and bug reports concerning this manual page should be directed
       to chet@po.cwru.edu.
