Environmental variables to pass to the sudo command.

options.env

Environmental variables to pass through to the spawned command.

options.uid

User to spawn as.

options.gid

suspawn.getSpawnOptions(command[, args][, options])

A useful little function if you do not actually want to spawn the process, but would rather get the options to spawn it yourself. This allows some modification instead of straight spawning.
