       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


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


       List available commands.


       Print help information. You may supply a command name to help to get specific  information
       about it.


       Print information about the entries in the authority file.


       List (print) entries in the authority file. You may specify optional modifiers as below to
       specify which entries are listed.

       list [ protocol_name ] [ protocol_data ] [ netid ] [ authname ]


       Add an entry to the authority file. This must be in the format

       add protocol_name protocol_data netid authname authdata


       Remove entries from the authority file.

       remove [ protocol_name ] [ protocol_data ] [ netid ] [ authname ]


       Extract entries from the authority file in to a destination file. You must supply the path
       to  the  destination to this command as in the following format. Optional specifiers allow
       you to narrow which entries are extracted.

       extract filename [ protocol_name ] [ protocol_data ] [ netid ] [ authname ]


       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:

       merge filename1 [ filename2 ] [ filename3 ] ...


       Save changes and exit the program.


       Abort changes and exit the program without saving.


       Read and execute commands from a file.

       source filename
