people project consists in a frontend/wrapper to rwho.

The people program is a simple frontend that calls "rwho" and then reformats and sorts the output in a people centric way, i.e. a listing where each user occupies a single line and includes the username, the real name and then a list of the computers the user is logged in to.

The "getopt" files are from the Gnu project.

The program may be used as a simple "fingerd" replacement and will try to have as one if called under the name "fingerd".

For example if you have this in your /etc/inetd.conf file:

$ finger stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/local/bin/people fingerd

To compile it, simple do "./configure ; make" and then do "make install" to install it and the manual page in /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/man/man1. See the file INSTALL for more specific instructions regarding options to the "configure" script.

What's New in This Release:

Minor portability issues were fixed.
