NAME

uriexec - Decode and execute the given URI-encoded command

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  uriexec [--cd I<cd>] echo %24HOME



DESCRIPTION

Run the specified command (optionally from the specified directory). Each URL-encoded character (%xx) is translated prior to executing the command with exec().

Uriexec solves the classic problem of having to figure out how to quote shell metacharacters to pass commands across multiple shells and ssh processes. Simply call uriexec on a string created with URI::Escape::uri_escape, and it will end up executing on the final machine with proper quoting.

ARGUMENTS

--cd dir Directory to cd to before the exec of the given command, URI-encoded.
--shell shell Name of the shell and additional parameters to prefix, URI-encoded. Defaults to /bin/sh -c.
--show Instead of executing the command, print the decoding of the command to aid in user debug. This also supports decoding nested uriexec calls, however they are not always perfect so the output from this option is only for users, not scripts.
--version Displays program version and exits.
