       pfexec, pfsh, pfcsh, pfksh - execute a command in a profile

       /usr/bin/pfexec command

       /usr/bin/pfexec -P privspec command [ arg ]...

       /usr/bin/pfsh [ options ] [ argument ]...

       /usr/bin/pfcsh [ options ] [ argument ]...

       /usr/bin/pfksh [ options ] [ argument ]...

       The pfexec program is used to execute commands with the attributes specified by the user's
       profiles in the exec_attr(4) database. It is invoked by the profile shells,  pfsh,  pfcsh,
       and pfksh which are linked to the Bourne shell, C shell, and Korn shell, respectively.

       Profiles are searched in the order specified in the user's entry in the user_attr(4) data-
       base. If the same command appears in more than one profile, the	profile  shell	uses  the
       first matching entry.

       The  second  form,  pfexec  -P privspec, allows a user to obtain the additional privileges
       awarded to the user's profiles in prof_attr(4). The privileges specification on	the  com-
       mands  line  is parsed using priv_str_to_set(3C). The resulting privileges are intersected
       with the union of the privileges specified using the "privs" keyword in	prof_attr(4)  for
       all the user's profiles and added to the inheritable set before executing the command.

       pfexec  is  used to execute commands with predefined process attributes,  such as specific
       user or group IDs.

       Refer to the sh(1), csh(1), and ksh(1) man pages for complete usage  descriptions  of  the
       profile shells.

       Example 1 Obtaining additional user privileges

	 example% pfexec -P all chown user file

       This  command  runs  chown user file with all privileges assigned to the current user, not
       necessarily all privileges.

       The following exit values are returned:

       0     Successful completion.

       1     An error occurred.

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:
