forcing program to run in root mode
 
dear all,

i am writing a program under kylix and i need it to be run only by root, since it does modifications to root owned files.

how can i get it to run as root? if i chmod the binary file it will do, however as i'm releasing source code too i'd like that people that compile it already have this characteristic.

do you know how i could do this?

any suggestion welcomed.

cheers,

aj.

If you're distributing a makefile to compile it, you can chmod in that.
