AT.ALLOW(5) Linux Programmer s Manual AT.ALLOW(5)

NAME at.allow, at.deny - determine who can submit jobs via at or batch

DESCRIPTION The /etc/at.allow and /etc/at.deny files determine which user can sub- mit commands for later execution via at(1) or batch(1).

The format of the files is a list of usernames, one on each line. Whitespace is not permitted.

The superuser may always use at.

If the file /etc/at.allow exists, only usernames mentioned in it are allowed to use at.

If /etc/at.allow does not exist, /etc/at.deny is checked.
