users - file server user list format
The permanent file servers each maintain a private list of users and groups, in /adm/users
by convention. Each line in the file has the format
where num is a decimal integer, name and leader are printable strings excluding the char-
acters and and members is a comma-separated list of such strings. Such a line defines a
user and a group with the given name; the group has a group leader given by leader and
group members given by the user names in members. The leader field may be empty, in which
case any group member is a group leader. The members field may be empty.
Lines beginning with are ignored.
The num in a line is a number used internally by a file server; there should be no dupli-
cate nums in the file. A negative num is special: a user with a negative num cannot
attach to the file server. The file /adm/users itself is owned by user adm, having a neg-
ative num, and write protected to others, so it can only be changed via console commands.
