USERLIST(8)             (29 August 1999)              USERLIST(8)

     NAME
          userlist - Userlisting of who's on your system.

     SYNOPSIS
          userlist

     DESCRIPTION
          This program simply gives you a listing of who is connected
          to your system.  It is used primarily in the sorted listing
          of cfingerd, which utilitizes the same method of display for
          a more uniform output between systems.  (It also made more
          sense to do it this way instead of having jumbled up display
          listings in sorted finger displays.  Besides, it made more
          sense to do this than use finger.  :)

          This program functions with the same types of things in mind
          that cfingerd does.  If the user has a .nofinger file, their
          username will not be displayed in the userlisting.

          Example output is shown as:

           Username Real Name      Idletime TTY Remote console
           username I'm real ...   9d 23:59   0 (remote.site.com)

          where it would display the user's login name, the user's
          real name, their idle time given in the format "dd hh:mm",
          their TTY, and their remote location (or where they're tel-
          netting from).

          If the username is over 8 characters, the program will not
          search for their information in the passwd file, since it
          may be too long.  Besides, it checks getpwnam, anyway.  :)

     OPTIONS
          -c   Give standard CFINGERD (custom) output.

          -n   List only people idle less than one day.

     ADDITIONAL
          Although userlist is not required to run as suid root, it is
          a good idea.  The reason is it checks each users' directory
          for a .nofinger file.  If indeed that user has a .nofinger
          file in his/her directory, that user will not be shown in
          the userlisting.

          If you change the program to run as nobody.nobody, you are
          free to do so.  But you will also show the users if they are
          online, regardless of whether or not they have a ".nofinger"
          file (as long as their directory is NOT world-readable.)
