  • File runas-sudo.ps1 — part of check-in [7ea16fa99b] at 2018-06-10 13:42:39 on branch trunk — Actually, Start-Process cmdlet with -Verb RunAs can help you run process with admin’s rights, but… I do not like this cmdlet. I wanna something useable, so I wrote a prototype of something that looks like runas in cmd (or sudo in bash). (user: greg zakharov size: 1610)
