Unfortunately this is not easily done. The user will need read access
to the directories containing the binaries, such as /bin for the
previously mentioned 'ls' program.

If you're willing to restrict them further, and only allow them to
change files within their home directory and subdirectories, but not
allow them to run any programs, you could set them up with a FTP-only
login. You'll need to consult your FTP server documentation to
determine how to do this.
