sudo works similarly:
sudo command arg arg arg...
It runs as root, then prompts for a password, and execs the command if the password is correct
nice -10 command arg arg arg...
It sets the nice value and execs the command
Whenever a process tries to access a file, if the path begins with /, the lookup starts at the process's root directory

chroot dir command arg arg arg...

Subsequent file lookups are interpreted relative to the new root
