quota - display disk usage and limits

Quota displays users' disk usage and limits. By default only the user
quotas are printed.
-g Print group quotas for the group of which the user is a member.
The optional -u flag is equivalent to the default.
-v quota will display quotas on filesystems where no storage is al-
-q Print a more terse message, containing only information on
filesystems where usage is over quota.
Specifying both -g and -u displays both the user quotas and the group
quotas (for the user).
Only the super-user may use the -u flag and the optional user argument to
view the limits of other users. Non-super-users can use the the -g flag
and optional group argument to view only the limits of groups of which
they are members.
The -q flag takes precedence over the -v flag.
Quota reports the quotas of all the filesystems listed in /etc/fstab. If
quota exits with a non-zero status, one or more filesystems are over quo-
quota.user located at the filesystem root with user quotas
quota.group located at the filesystem root with group quotas
/etc/fstab to find filesystem names and locations
The quota command appeared in 4.2BSD.
