become command

Hi All,

Has anyone of you come across a command called "become" in Linux? i am not sure if its a Unix command or a home grown one, but one of my customer seems to be using it and it basically does a su- from one user to another. Any suggestions welcome.

Customer is using 2.6.5 kernel on 64-bit Linux

Re: become command

'become' is not a command at least on SUSE, and RHEL boxes.
I think your customer has created an 'alias' for 'su' command.
