.SH NAME
sup - scale user priviledges
sup - a "small is beautiful" tool for UNIX privilege escalation
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B sup
.RB [ \-hlv ]
.SH DESCRIPTION
sup is a minimal priviledge scalation utility that allow normal
users to run other programs as different user and group.
sup is a very small and secure C application. it is designed to run as root (with suid bit on) to facilitate the privilege escalation of users to execute certain programs as superuser.
.P
The configuration is done in config.h at compile time.
all settings in sup are hard-coded at compile time. sup is very portable and self-contained, designed for production use as a static binary. sup is a sort of hard-coded sudo: it is an ideal companion for artisans building small containers and embedded systems.
