NAME
       bcrontab - Manage users crontab files

SYNOPSIS
       bcrontab [ -u user ] file

       bcrontab [ -u user ] { -l | -r | -e }

DESCRIPTION
       bcrontab interfaces with the bcron-spool daemon to manage crontab files
       in the privileged spool directory.

OPTIONS
       -u user
              Tell bcron-spool that we are acting on behalf of the named user.
              bcron-spool will only accept the username if bcrontab is running
              as either root or the same user ID as the named user.

       -l     List the cronab crontab to standard output.

       -r     Remove the user's crontab.

       -e     Edit the current crontab.

ENVIRONMENT
       VISUAL If this is set, it is used as the editor to invoke to edit a
              crontab.

       EDITOR If $VISUAL is not set and this is, it is used as the editor to
              invoke to edit a crontab.  If neither are set, /bin/vi is used.

       BCRON_SOCKET
              The path to the named socket used to communicate with bcron-
              spool.  Defaults to /var/run/bcron-spool.

       LOGNAME

       USER   These two variables are used, in order, to determine the user
              name invoking the program.  One must be set if the -u option is
              not used.

FILES
       bcrontab tries to writes a temporary file into the current directory,
       and then into /tmp if that fails, in order to edit the current crontab.
