       cvssh — CVS shell for @FORGENAME@ / General execution wRAPper LITE!


       cvssh [-e "foo"]  [-e "foo bar"]  [-e "foo -c foo -f bar"]


       This manual page documents briefly the cvssh command.

       This  manual  page  was  written  for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution
       because the original program  does  not  have  a  manual  page,  but  a
       documentation in the code.

       cvssh  formely  called grap or graplite is a wrapper designed to verify
       commands before passing them to system() or just reporting the accepted
       command.   cvssh  will  report  an  error  if the input is invalid.  It
       checks for string lengths (prevent overflows), specific sets of options
       and commands.


       These  programs  follow  the  usual  GNU command line syntax, with long
       options starting with two  dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary  of  options  is
       included below.

       cvssh,  in  full  force,  is  called  as:  <cvssh>  <option> "<command>
       <arguments list ... >" where <cvssh> is this program,  <option>  is  an
       optional  trap  for a single option (like "-e" or "-c" used by programs
       that call shells, subject to the approval list below), <command> is the
       command  wished  to  be  run  (subject to the approval list below), and
       <arguments list .. > is the list of args passed to  <command>  All  are
       optional,  allowing  for  forms such as: cvssh -e "foo" cvssh "foo bar"
       cvssh -e "foo -c foo -f bar" <g ><o ><cmd>  <g  >  <cmd/args>  <g  ><o>
       <cmd/ args >

       <options>  and  <command>  need  to  be  exact  matched to those in the
       acceptance list.

       -e        Accepted commands.
