    <para>
      <command>lxc-execute</command> runs the specified
      <replaceable>command</replaceable> inside the container
      specified by <replaceable>name</replaceable>.
    </para>
    <para>
      It will setup the container
      according to the configuration previously defined with the
      lxc-create command or with the configuration file parameter.
      If no configuration is
      defined, the default isolation is used.
    </para>
    <para>
      This command is mainly used when you want to quickly launch an
      application in an isolated environment.
    </para>
    <para>
      <command>lxc-execute</command> command will run the
      specified command into the container via an intermediate
      process, <command>lxc-init</command>.
      This lxc-init after launching  the specified command,
      will wait for its end and all other reparented processes.
      (to support daemons in the container).
      In other words, in the
      container, <command>lxc-init</command> has the pid 1 and the
      first process of the application has the pid 2.
     </para>
     <para>
      The above <command>lxc-init</command> is designed to forward received
      signals to the started command.
     </para>

	  </para>
	  <para>
	   This configuration file if present will be used even if there is
	   already a configuration file present in the previously created
	   container (via lxc-create).

	  <para>
	    Assign value <replaceable>VAL</replaceable> to configuration

	    This option is useful when you want specify options
