SYSADMIN(1)									      SYSADMIN(1)

NAME
       sysadmin  -  responsible for everything imaginable that may or may not have to do with the
       system you're using.  Contraction of "system" and "administrator"

SYNOPSIS
       sysadmin [-ab] [-cd] [-ef] etc......

DESCRIPTION
       sysadmin takes care of everything, is generally harangued, must be supplied  with  coffee,
       chocolate,  and	alcohol  in  order to function properly, cannot be exposed to direct sun-
       light, and must not be allowed to have a life.

       sysadmin is not intended as a user interface routine; other programs provide user-friendly
       front ends; sysadmin is used by everyone who can track him [her] down.

       With  no  flags,  sysadmin reads its standard input up to an EOF, or a line which sysadmin
       wishes to parse, and then proceeds to ignore it entirely  and  read  news  all  day.  When
       invoked	with the -w option, sysadmin reads standard input and responds according to terms
       of job description.

OPTIONS
       -bofh  Go into Bastard Operator From Hell mode.	This option causes sysadmin to use  tools
	      stored  in  the  /usr/lib/bofh directory to parse the standard input and route user
	      tasks appropriately.

       -cd    causes sysadmin to become caffeine-deprived, resulting in system slowdowns.

       -b     causes the sysadmin to function normally while augmenting the standard  input  with
	      beer(5).	 Can  be used with the -t option as well, depending upon which version of
	      sysadmin you are running.

       -t     causes the sysadmin to smoke tobacco, which can result in  significant  performance
	      improvement, provided you are running the correct version of sysadmin.

       -Cfile Specify an alternate configuration file (sysadmin.cf is the standard).

       -dX    set debuggin value to X.

       -fFullname
	      Set the full name of the sysadmin.

       -Bf    Create the sysadmin.cf configuration freeze file.

       -lname Sets  the  name  of the "luser" person (that is, originator of a given request). -l
	      can only be used by "trusted" users (who are listed in sysadmin.cf).

NOTES
       The -t option should not be used with a version of sysadmin which is not capable of  pars-
       ing  tobacco  input.   Though the functionality of this command may seem similar to the -b
       option, it should not be confused with that or the related -c option.
