       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 |\
         sed ’2s/.*/ME/’|\
         sed ’3s/.*/LOGIN_CONTROL/’|\

       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/’|\

       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.

       -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 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.
