    Hi,

    I would like Joe to just read files (^KE, ^KR) or write block (^KW) to/from a specific subtree in my filesystem. Any help?

    Thanks in advance.

     
    • Yes.
      Use rjoe.

      Are you sure that rjoe does what the original poster wanted?  I thought of that too, but I couldn't find any reference to the exact feature in the manual, or any call to the chroot() system call -- which is one common way of restricting access on UNIX -- in the source code.
