worms - animate worms on a display terminal SYNOPSIS
/usr/games/worms [ -field ] [ -length # ] [ -number # ] [ -trail ] DESCRIPTION
Brian Horn (cithep!bdh) showed me a TOPS-20 program on the DEC-2136 machine called WORM, and suggested that I write a similar program that would run under Unix. I did, and no apologies. -field makes a "field" for the worm(s) to eat; -trail causes each worm to leave a trail behind it. You can figure out the rest by your- self. FILES

The lower-right-hand character position will not be updated properly on a terminal that wraps at the right margin. Terminal initialization is not performed. 4th Berkeley Distribution May 20, 1985 WORMS(6)

audit - audit trail format and other information for auditing DESCRIPTION
Audit records are generated when users make security-relevant system calls, as well as by self-auditing processes that call (see aud- write(2)). Access to the auditing system is restricted to super-user. Each audit record consists of an audit record header and a record body. The record header is comprised of sequence number, process ID, event type, and record body length. The sequence number gives relative order of all records; the process ID belongs to the process being audited; the event type is a field identifying the type of audited activity; the length is the record body length expressed in bytes. The record body is the variable-length component of an audit record containing more information about the audited activity. For records generated by system calls, the body contains the time the audited event completes in either success or failure, and the parameters of the system calls; for records generated by self-auditing processes, the body consists of the time audwrite(2) writes the records and the high- level description of the event (see audwrite(2)). The records in the audit trail are compressed to save file space. When a process is audited the first time, a pid identification record (PIR) is written into the audit trail containing information that remains constant throughout the lifetime of the process. This includes the parent's process ID, audit tag, real user ID, real group ID, effective user ID, effective group ID, group ID list, effective, permit- ted, and retained privileges, compartment ID, and the terminal ID (tty). The PIR is entered only once per process per audit trail. Information accumulated in an audit trail is analyzed and displayed by (see audisp(1M)). AUTHOR
