NAME
     lock -- reserve a terminal

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION
     Lock requests a password from the user, reads it again for	verification
     and then will normally not	relinquish the terminal	until the password is
     repeated.	There are two other conditions under which it will terminate:
     it	will timeout after some	interval of time and it	may be killed by some-
     one with the appropriate permission.

     Options:

     -p		 A password is not requested, instead the user's current login
		 password is used.

     -t	timeout	 The time limit	(default 15 minutes) is	changed	to timeout
		 minutes.

HISTORY
     The lock command appeared in 3.0BSD.
