       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.
