URIEXEC(1)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	    URIEXEC(1)

NAME
       uriexec - Decode	and execute the	given URI-encoded command

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.
