chroot

See the current Perl documentation for chroot.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


chroot - make directory new root for path lookups



chroot FILENAME

chroot



This function works like the system call by the same name: it makes the named directory the new root directory for all further pathnames that begin with a "/" by your process and all its children. (It doesn't change your current working directory, which is unaffected.) For security reasons, this call is restricted to the superuser. If FILENAME is omitted, does a chroot() to $_.

[Cosmic37]: hello perly kings and queens
[jedikaiti]: 'ello Monks
[Cosmic37]: and monkeys too...
[Cosmic37]: is anyone doing machine learning with Perl?
[Cosmic37]: I was using gneural code in C and it was interesting but did not have back propagation for neural networks
[corenth]: Cosmic, poking at it, but not really.
[Cosmic37]: I read that its possible to use the FANN library with Perl so I might try that now...
[corenth]: i have a question. I used map{ blah();blah(); blah();}@stuff; and it used up a ton of memory vs. the for(@stuff){} equivalent. What gives? (if anyone knows)
[Cosmic37]: FANN also has LGPL license which I like and its supposed to be quite a capable library from what I read
[corenth]: Cosmic, that sounds interesting. What is FANN (I could search it if I weren't so lazy about it)?
