There is a binary in my home directory: "foo"
My PATH variable doesn't contains my home dir.
I cannot change my PATH varible, since it's read-only

Question: How can I execute this binary without using the following:

. ./foo

    What problem are you trying to solve? Why not use one of those, or ~/foo? – mattdm May 6 '15 at 19:35
  • I cannot have any "/" in my commands – LoukiosValentine79 May 6 '15 at 19:38
  • Can you explain why that is? bash foo doesn't have a slash in it after all... – Jan May 6 '15 at 19:47

    Is the actual question "how can I run an arbitrary executable in a restricted shell"? – Mark Plotnick May 6 '15 at 19:54

    Or is the question "what's the difference between the three ways of running programs"? – lcd047 May 6 '15 at 19:55

Try this:

create a parse.sh file with content:

export PATH=$PATH:./

execute with bash --noprofile --norc parse.sh
