Perinci::Sub::Property::drops_privilege - Declare that function drops privilege during running
This document describes version 0.08 of Perinci::Sub::Property::drops_privilege (from Perl distribution Perinci-Sub-Property-drops_privilege), released on 2016-05-11.
# in your function metadata drops_privilege => 'temp'
Valid values: '', 'temporary' (or 'temp'), or 'permanent' (or 'perm').
This property declares that function drops privilege (either temporarily by setting EUID ($>), or permanently by setting UID ($<)) during execution. Usually the function is run by superuser and needs to perform things on behalf of normal users.
This property's wrapper implementation currently does this: If privilege is dropped temporarily, make sure that we switch back to superuser. Sometimes when the function dies, privileges are not restored, causing failure to subsequent operation.
