     fbtab - change device protection upon login


     The fbtab file contains lines which specify how the permissions and own-
     ership of various system files should be changed based on the user's lo-
     gin device name.

     Comments start with a '#' and extend to the end of the line. Blank lines
     or lines with only a comment are ignored.

     All other lines consist of three fields delimited by whitespace.

                           devices (e.g., "/dev/console:/dev/fd0a"). All dev-

     The fbtab file is used by login(1) to chown(2) the specified files to the
     user who has performed a login. Additionally, chmod(2) is used to set the
     devices to the specified permission. When a user logs out, init(8) is
     responsible for performing the inverse operation, which results in the
     files once again belonging to root.
