I am working on a new OJS system. I was told by the CIO that I can access the source code by typing "SUDO." I also was told that I need to download SUDO. My goal is to reach the source code on their server. The CIO said that all he did was download the OJS platform and doesn't know anything else about the system except that I need to get to SUDO. 1) can you tell me how to access SUDO, and 2) what it does?

Hi mmatisoff,

I fear you've probably been thrown in over your head. "sudo" is a standard *NIX tool, not part of any of our software, though it's commonly used to administer a *NIX system. It's described here. I suspect your CIO is going to have to walk you through this; his recommendation that you download sudo is less than helpful.
