in reply to suidperl

For security reasons, modern unices disable SUID bit on scripts.
(Beccause it's often IMPOSSIBLE to have safe SUID shell script)
suidperl allow you to use this suid feature even on such system...

For a detailed explanation see : perlsec...

Another (more general) safe way is the prog sudo

    There have before been security problems in suidperl. And the sudo utility works just fine for me. Therefore given a choice, I always remove suidperl and use sudo instead.
