NAME

       nwbpset - Create a bindery property or set its value


SYNOPSIS

       nwbpset [ -h ] [ -S server ] [ -U user name ] [ -P password | -n ] [ -C
       ]



DESCRIPTION

       nwbpset Reads a property specification from the standard input and cre-
       ates  and  sets the corresponding property. The format is determined by
       the output of ’nwbpvalues -c’. nwbpset will hopefully become an  impor-
       tant part of the bindery management suite of ncpfs, together with

       As another example, look at the following command line:

         nwbpvalues -t 1 -o supervisor -p user_defaults -c |\
         sed ’2s/.*/ME/’|\
         sed ’3s/.*/LOGIN_CONTROL/’|\
         nwbpset

       With  this  command,  the  property  user_defaults  of  the user object
       ´supervisor´ is copied into the  property  login_control  of  the  user
       object ´me´.

         nwbpvalues -t 1 -o me -p login_control -c |\
         sed ’9s/.*/ff/’|\
         nwbpset

       This command disables the user object me.

       Feel free to contribute other examples!

       nwbpset looks up the file $HOME/.nwclient to find a file server, a user
       name and possibly a password. See  nwclient(5)  for  more  information.
       Please  note that the access permissions of $HOME/.nwclient MUST be 600
       for security reasons.



OPTIONS

       -h
          -h is used to print out a short help text.

       -S server
          server is the name of the server you want to use.

       -U user
          user is the user name to use for login.

       -P password
          password is the password to use for login. If neither -n nor -P  are
          given,  and  the  user has no open connection to the server, nwbpset
          prompts for a password.

       -n
          -n should be given if no password is required for the login.

       -C
          By default, passwords are converted to  uppercase  before  they  are
          sent  to the server, because most servers require this. You can turn
          off this conversion by -C.
