XTRLOCK(1)		    General Commands Manual		    XTRLOCK(1)

NAME
       xtrlock - Lock X	display	until password supplied, leaving windows visi-
       ble

SYNOPSIS
       xtrlock [-b] [-f]

DESCRIPTION
       xtrlock locks the X server till the user	enters their password  at  the
       keyboard.

       While  xtrlock  is  running, the	mouse and keyboard are grabbed and the
       mouse cursor becomes a padlock.	Output displayed by  X	programs,  and
       windows	put  up	 by new	X clients, continue to be visible, and any new
       output is displayed normally.

       The mouse and keyboard are returned when	the user types their password,
       followed	 by Enter or Newline.  If an incorrect password	is entered the
       bell is sounded.	 Pressing Backspace or Delete erases one character  of
       a  password  partially  typed; pressing Escape or Clear clears anything
       that has	been entered.

       If too many attempts are	made in	too short a  time  further  keystrokes
       generate	bells and are otherwise	ignored	until a	timeout	has expired.

       The  X  server  screen saver continues to operate normally; if it comes
       into operation the display may be restored by the usual means of	touch-
       ing a key (Shift, for example) or the mouse.

OPTIONS
       -b     blank the	screen as well as displaying the padlock

       -f     fork after locking is complete, and return success from the par-
	      ent process

X RESOURCES, CONFIGURATION
       None.

BUGS
       Additional input	devices	other than the keyboard	and mouse are not dis-
       abled.

       The timeouts, bitmaps and mouse cursor colour cannot be modifed.
