NAME
       docker-container-exec - Run a command in a running container

SYNOPSIS
       docker container exec [OPTIONS] CONTAINER COMMAND [ARG...]

DESCRIPTION
       Run a process in a running container.

       The command started using docker exec will only run while the
       container's primary process (PID 1) is running, and will not be
       restarted if the container is restarted.

       If the container is paused, then the docker exec command will wait
       until the container is unpaused, and then run

CAPABILITIES
       privileged gives the process extended Linux capabilities
       <http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man7/capabilities.7.html> when running
       in a container.

       Without this flag, the process run by docker exec in a running
       container has the same capabilities as the container, which may be
       limited. Set --privileged to give all capabilities to the process.

USER
       user sets the username or UID used and optionally the groupname or GID
       for the specified command.

       The followings examples are all valid:
          --user [user | user:group | uid | uid:gid | user:gid | uid:group ]

       Without this argument the command will be run as root in the container.

       --detach-keys=""

       -e, --env=
           Set environment variables

       -i, --interactive[=false]
           Keep STDIN open even if not attached

       --privileged[=false]
