perl running on different shells & restricted shells;
Message ID:
I run a network of UNIX servers on the Internet, we are primarily a web 
hosting service.  In order to help tighten up security on or networks we are 
looking into setting up restricted shells for users.  This way we can supply 
each hosting account with their own bin with their own utilities and 
restricted unix commands available to that account.  We are currently running 
c shell on all user accounts but are going to have to change this as c shell 
does not support a restricted shell environment.  The 2 shells that we are 
considering are "rsh (Restricted Borne Shell)" and "rksh (Restricted Korn 
Shell)".  My question is this.  Does perl, c, c++, g++, and www-perl 
libraries have any restrictions as to what shells they can run on.  If they 
will not run on any of these shells please tell me which shells have these
