       please  and pleaseedit are sudo alternatives that have regex support and a simple approach
       to ACL.

       The aim is to allow admins to delegate accurate principle of least privilege  access  with
       ease.  please.ini allows for very specific and flexible regex defined permissions.

       pleaseedit  adds a layer of safety to editing files.  The file is copied to /tmp, where it
       can be updated.  When EDITOR exits cleanly the file is copied alongside  the  target,  the
       file  will  then be renamed over the original, but if a exitcmd is configured it must exit
       cleanly first.

       -a/--allowenv list
              allow environments separated by , to be passed through

       -c/--check file
              will check the syntax of a please.ini config file.  Exits non-zero on error

              will change directory to dir prior to executing the command

       -g/--group groupname
              run or edit as groupname

              print help and exit

              to list rules

              will not prompt for authentication and exits with a status of 1

              will purge your current authentication token for the running user

       -r/--reason [reason]
              will add reason to the system log

       -t/--target [username]
              to execute command, or edit as target username

       -u/--user [username]
              to execute command, or edit as target username

              print version and exit

              will warm an authentication token and exit


       please -t httpd /bin/bash
              run a shell as the httpd user

       please -l
              to list what you may run

       please -t "username" -l
              to show what username may run.  username must match the target regex in a type=list

       please -r 'reloading apache2, change #123' systemctl reload apache2
              to reload apache2 with a reason

       pleaseedit -r 'adding new storage, ticket #24365' /etc/fstab
              to use pleaseedit to modify fstab

       Please see please.ini for configuration examples.
