Execute commands in a chroot environment


dchroot allows users to execute commands or interactive shells in different chroots. A typical installation might provide 'stable', 'testing' and 'unstable' chroots. Users can move between chroots as necessary.

NOTE: the schroot package provides a better implementation of dchroot. In particular:
 * dchroot quoting issues are not present. dchroot runs commands in
   the chroot with -c option of the user's default shell; when
   multiple command options are used, the options are concatenated
   together, separated by spaces. This concatenation breaks shell
 * schroot implements fine-grained access controls based on users
   and groups, either of which may be granted the ability to gain
   root access to the chroot if required.
Using schroot will avoid these issues, as well as provide additional functionality dchroot does not possess.
