NAME

       at.allow, at.deny - determine who can submit jobs via at or batch

DESCRIPTION

       The  /etc/at.allow  and  /etc/at.deny  files  determine  which user can
       submit commands for later execution via at(1) or batch(1).

       The format of the files is a list  of  usernames,  one  on  each  line.
       Whitespace is not permitted.

       If  the  file  /etc/at.allow exists, only usernames mentioned in it are
       allowed to use at.

       If  /etc/at.allow  does  not  exist,  /etc/at.deny  is  checked,  every
       username not mentioned in it is then allowed to use at.

       An empty /etc/at.deny means that every user may use at.

       If neither exists, only the superuser is allowed to use at.
