NAME

       bcrontab - Manage users crontab files

SYNOPSIS

       bcrontab [ -u user ] file

       bcrontab [ -u user ] { -l | -r | -e }

DESCRIPTION

       bcrontab  interfaces with the bcron-spool daemon to manage crontab files in the privileged
       spool directory.

OPTIONS

       -u user
              Tell bcron-spool that we are acting on behalf of the named user.  bcron-spool  will
              only  accept the username if bcrontab is running as either root or the same user ID
              as the named user.

       -l     List the cronab crontab to standard output.

       -r     Remove the user's crontab.

       -e     Edit the current crontab.

ENVIRONMENT

       VISUAL If this is set, it is used as the editor to invoke to edit a crontab.

       EDITOR If $VISUAL is not set and this is, it is used as the editor to  invoke  to  edit  a
              crontab.  If neither are set, /bin/vi is used.

       BCRON_SOCKET
              The  path  to  the  named socket used to communicate with bcron-spool.  Defaults to
              /var/run/bcron-spool.

       LOGNAME

       USER   These two variables are used, in order, to determine the  user  name  invoking  the
              program.  One must be set if the -u option is not used.

FILES

       bcrontab  tries  to writes a temporary file into the current directory, and then into /tmp
       if that fails, in order to edit the current crontab.
