calife — becomes root (or another user) legally.


calife [-] [login]


... [-] [login] for some sites (check with your administrator).


Calife requests user's own password for becoming login (or root, if no login is provided),
and switches to that user and group ID after verifying proper rights to do so. A shell is
then executed. If calife is executed by root, no password is requested and a shell with the
appropriate user ID is executed.

The invoked shell is the user's own except when a shell is specified in the configuration
file calife.auth.

If ``-'' is specified on the command line, user's profile files are read as if it was a
login shell.

This is not the traditional behavior of su.

Only users specified in calife.auth can use calife to become another one with this method.

You can specify in the calife.auth file the list of logins allowed for users when using
calife. See calife.auth(5) for more details.

calife.auth is installed as /etc/calife.auth.
