NAME
       at.allow, at.deny - determine who can submit jobs via at or batch

DESCRIPTION
       The  /etc/at.allow and /etc/at.deny files determine which user can sub-
       mit commands for later execution via at(1) or batch(1).

       The format of the files is a list  of  usernames,  one  on  each  line.
       Whitespace is not permitted.

       The superuser may always use at.

       If  the  file  /etc/at.allow exists, only usernames mentioned in it are
       allowed to use at.

       If /etc/at.allow does not exist, /etc/at.deny is checked.
