I have set up a restricted shell account to allow users across the
company to edit a specific file. Fortunately this account does not need
any special privileges above being able to write to this file. However
using vi as the editor means that while the user is logged on they can
still load up other files to at least read.
Is there an alternative editor to vi that can be "signalled" to
exclusively edit a file and thus restrict a user to editing that file?
Can vi do this? My reading of the man pages suggested it cannot.
Thanks for your help.
