mnemonic program euid:egid cred_type:cred
This jacket builds the xauth(1) data to allow the target login of an op
escalated command access to the current X(7) display.
The program should be specified as a jacket.
This program takes all the op provided options, but actually doesn't
look at any of them (other than -P).
Like any jacket, most of the configuration is passed from op via the
The current X display environment variable must the passed
through, or set to a known active fixed value.
The target logins home directory, for xauth.
These are example from the command-line:
Output only the version of the program, then exit.
Output a summary of the environment expected.
This is pretty much the only useful way to call the jacket.
