Re: [augeas-devel] Equal sign in commands in sudoers.aug



As it turns out, I found a way. It cost me some stricter typechecking
on commands, but it reduces the typechecking to 1,4GB again. The idea
is to declare sto_to_com_cmnd as:

  let sto_to_com_cmnd =
        let alias = Rx.word - /(NO)?(PASSWD|EXEC|SETENV)/
     in let non_alias = /(!?\/([^,:#()\n\\]|\\\\[=:,\\])*[^,=:#()
\t\n\\])|[^,=:#() \t\n\\]/
     in store (alias | non_alias)

Forcing the first character of a command to be "!" or "/" (unless it's
an alias) doesn't seem crazy, and this way the restriction is only
made to Rx.word, which is far less costly.
