nwbpset - Create a bindery property or set its value
nwbpset [ -h ] [ -S server ] [ -U user name ] [ -P password | -n ] [ -C
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 |\
With this command, the property user_defaults of the user object
´supervisor´ is copied into the property login_control of the user
nwbpvalues -t 1 -o me -p login_control -c |\
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.
-h is used to print out a short help text.
server is the name of the server you want to use.
user is the user name to use for login.
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 should be given if no password is required for the login.
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.
