       holidays - prime/nonprime table for the accounting system


       The  /etc/acct/holidays file describes which hours are considered prime
       time and which days  are holidays.  Holidays and weekends  are  consid-
       ered  non-prime time hours.  /etc/acct/holidays is used by the account-
       ing system.

       All lines beginning with an "*" are comments.

       The  /etc/acct/holidays file consists of two sections.  The first  non-
       comment  line  defines the current year and the start time of prime and
       non-prime time hours, in the form:

       current_year      prime_start      non_prime_start

       The remaining non-comment lines define the holidays in the  form:

       month/day     company_holiday

       Of these two fields, only the   month/day  is  actually  used  by   the
       accounting system programs.

       The  /etc/acct/holidays file must be updated each year.
