NAME            su  --  become privileged user

SYNOPSIS        su password

DESCRIPTION     su allows one to become the super-user, who has

                all sorts of marvelous powers.  In order for su

                to do its magic, the user must pass as an argu-

                ment a password.  If the password is correct, su

                will execute the shell with the UID set to that

                of the super-user.  To restore normal UID privi-

                leges, type an end-of-file to the super-user
