iceauth - ICE authority file utility


iceauth [ -f authfile ] [ -vqib ] [ command arg ... ]


The iceauth program is used to edit and display the authorization information used in
connecting with ICE. This program is usually used to extract authorization records from
one machine and merge them in on another (as is the case when using remote logins or
granting access to other users). Commands (described below) may be entered interactively,
on the iceauth command line, or in scripts.


-f authfile Name of the authority file to use. Will default to
the file currently in use by the session.

-v Turns on extra messages (verbose mode)

-q Turns off extra messages (quiet mode)

-i Ignore the locks on the authority file

-b Break the locks on the authority file

-u Print basic usage instructions

-V Print version and exit


When iceauth is run it will allow the following set of commands to be entered
interactively or in scripts.

you to narrow which entries are extracted.

Merge entries from other files in to the authority file selected by the program. You may
supply any number of file paths to this command as follows:
