       holidays - prime/nonprime table for the accounting system


       The /etc/acct/holidays file specifies prime time hours and holidays. Holidays and weekends
       are considered non-prime time hours.

       /etc/acct/holidays is used by the accounting system.

       All lines beginning with an * are comments.

       The /etc/acct/holidays file consists of two sections. The first non-comment  line  defines
       the current year and the start time of prime and non-prime time hours, in the form of:

	 current_year prime_start non_prime_start

       Specify prime_start and non_prime_start times in the range of 0000 to 2400.

       The remaining non-comment lines define the holidays in the form of:

	 month/day company_holiday

       Of  these  two  fields,	only the month/day is actually used by the accounting system pro-

       The /etc/acct/holidays file must be updated every year.
