edquota - edit user quotas
edquota [ -p proto-user ] users...
Edquota is a quota editor. One or more users may be specified on the command line. For
each user a temporary file is created with an ASCII representation of the current disc
quotas for that user and an editor is then invoked on the file. The quotas may then be
modified, new quotas added, etc. Upon leaving the editor, edquota reads the temporary
file and modifies the binary quota files to reflect the changes made.
If the -p option is specified, edquota will duplicate the quotas of the prototypical user
specified for each user specified. This is the normal mechanism used to initialize quotas
for groups of users.
The editor invoked is vi(1) unless the environment variable EDITOR specifies otherwise.
Only the super-user may edit quotas.
