DESCRIPTION

       The  genders library functions are a set of functions used to parse and retrieve data from
       a genders file.  For API details, please see the  individual  manpages  for  each  of  the
       functions above, or read the comments written in /usr/include/genders.h.

GENDERS FILE FORMAT

       Each  line  of  the  genders  file has one of the following formats.  See the section HOST
       RANGES below for information on host range formatting.

            nodename                attr[=value],attr[=value],...
            nodename1,nodename2,... attr[=value],attr[=value],...
            nodenames[A-B]          attr[=value],attr[=value],...

       The nodename(s) are the shortened hostnames of a node.  This is followed by any number  of
       spaces  or  tabs,  and  then  the  comma-separated  list  of attributes, each of which can
       optionally have a value.  The substitution string "%n" can be used in an  attribute  value
       to  represent  the  nodename.   Nodenames  can  be  listed  on multiple lines, so a node's
       attributes can be specified on multiple lines.  However, no single node may have duplicate
       attributes.

       There  must  be  no  spaces  embedded  in the attribute list and there is no provision for
       continuation lines.  Commas  and  equal  characters  are  special  and  cannot  appear  in
       attribute names or their values.  Comments are prefixed with the hash chracter (#) and can
       appear anywhere in the file.  The active genders file is typically found  at  /etc/genders
       or /admin/etc/genders.

       Here is an example genders file from a small 16-node linux cluster:

            # slc cluster genders file
            slci,slcj,slc[0-15]  eth2=e%n,cluster=slc,all
            slci                 passwdhost
            slci,slcj            management
            slc[1-15]            compute

HOST RANGES

       As  noted  in  sections  above,  the  genders  database accepts ranges of nodenames in the
       general form: prefix[n-m,l-k,...], where n < m and l <  k,  etc.,  as  an  alternative  to
       explicit lists of nodenames.

       This  range  syntax  is  meant  only  as  a convenience on clusters with a prefixNN naming
       convention and specification of ranges should not be  considered  necessary  --  the  list
       foo1,foo9 could be specified as such, or by the range foo[1,9].

       Some examples of range usage follow:

       foo01,foo02,foo03,foo04,foo05:    foo[01-05]

       foo3,foo7,foo9,foo11:             foo[3,7,9-11]

       fooi,fooj,foo0,foo1,foo2:         fooi,fooj,foo[0-2]
