comment Gives access to root user for a period of time
Does the user require root access? Or just elevated privileges for specific tasks? As @Gilles mentioned, once you give someone root, there's really no way to guarantee that you can take it back. You'd be better served putting the effort into designing a role account, or a sudo profile that provides exactly the required privileges, with nothing extra.

comment $PWD variable equivalent of pwd -P
some shells support $(pwd -P) syntax, as opposed to back ticks, but I don't think (t)csh is one (or two) of them. Also, for why you shouldn't script in (t)csh, see: shlomifish.org/open-source/anti/csh
