NAME
     fbtab -- change device protection upon login

DESCRIPTION
     The fbtab file contains a number of lines specifying a device together
     with a list of devices with associated protections.  Comments start with
     a `#' and extend to the end of the	line.

     Blank lines or lines with only a comment are ignored.

     All other lines consist of	three fields delimited by whitespace: a	login
     device (/dev/ttyv0), an octal permission number (0600), and a colon (`:')
     delimited list of device patterns (/dev/console, /dev/dsp*).  All device
     patterns are absolute paths.

     If	the tty	argument (relative path) matches a login device	name (absolute
     path), the	permissions of the devices in the colon-delimited list are set
     as	specified in the second	field, and their ownership is changed to that
     of	the UID	and GID	arguments.

FILES
     /etc/fbtab	 The fbtab file	resides	in /etc.

SEE ALSO
     login(1), getty(8)
