NAME
       mknf, rmnf - create and delete notesfiles

SYNOPSIS
       mknf [ -aon ] topic [ ... ]

       rmnf [ -f ] topic [ ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       Mknf  and  rmnf	create and delete notesfiles respectively.  The same parameters apply for
       each: the `topic' is the name that the notesfile is known by.

       As mknf processes its arguments, creating new notesfiles, the name of each  new	notesfile
       is  echoed to the terminal.  The new notesfiles are closed and the notesfile owner is made
       the sole director.  He customarily turns control over to the user requesting the notesfile
       by making that person a director.

       The -aon options apply to mknf only.  They signify that the notesfiles created are to per-
       mit anonymous notes, be open, and be networked respectively.

       If the file `/usr/spool/notes/.utilities/access-template' is present, it contains  a  list
       of  access-rights  which  are  added to the created notesfile.  The file contains lines of
       access-rights similar to those used in the  nfaccess(8)	command.   In  environments  with
       dynamic	creation  of notesfiles, such as on USENET nodes, one or more users can automati-
       cally be made directors of all new notesfiles.  If appropriate, they can be  removed  from
       the access list of newly created notesfiles as needed.

       Rmnf asks for verification of each notesfile before deleting it.  The notesfile is deleted
       if the response line begins with a `y'.	If invoked with the -f option, rmnf does not  ask
       for verification before deleting the notesfiles.

       Only the notesfile owner is allowed to run mknf and rmnf.

BUGS
       Rmnf  doesn't  understand  about  absolute pathnames for notesfiles.  It refuses to remove
       notesfiles specified by absolute pathnames.

       Any user should be allowed to create private notesfiles in directories where he	has  per-
       mission.

FILES
