Name
       dxuam - graphical account management program

Syntax
       dxuam  [ options ]

Description
       The  command  invokes  the User Account Manager (UAM) application.  UAM
       simplifies account management by providing a graphical interface	 where
       you enter account information in text entry fields and specify informa‐
       tion by clicking on buttons and selecting items in list boxes.  You can
       also manage accounts by using templates, predefining new account infor‐
       mation, and predefining actions taken when you remove an account.   The
       command only supports the BSD level of security.

       Because UAM is an X Window System application, your DISPLAY environmen‐
       tal variable must be set to a machine that is an X  Server.   For  more
       information, see

       For  each  UAM  account management session, UAM creates a log file that
       records the account changes that have succeeded	and  those  that  have
       failed.	 The  log  file	 is  named  .uam_log, and it is located in the
       default log directory HOME.

Options
       -bd color	   Specifies the color of the window's	border	(color
			   displays  only).  The default is specified by means
			   of the Session Manager's  Customize	Window	dialog
			   box.

       -bg color	   Specifies  the  color  of  the  window's background
			   (color displays only).  The default is specified by
			   means  of  the  Session  Manager's Customize Window
			   dialog box.

       -d dispname	   Specifies the display screen on which the UAM  win‐
			   dow	is  displayed.	 The default display screen is
			   specified by	 your  DISPLAY	environment  variable.
			   The	display option has the format hostname:number.
			   Using two colons (::) instead of one (:)  indicates
			   that	 DECnet	 is  to	 be  used  for transport.  The
			   default is :0.  For more information, see

       -fg color	   Specifies the color of  the	text  (color  displays
			   only).   The	 default  is specified by means of the
			   Session Manager's Customize Window dialog box.

       -fn font		   Specifies the font used as the  output  font.   Any
			   fixed-width font can be used.  The default is 6x10.

       -geometry	   Specifies  the  width,  length, and location of the
			   UAM window.	If the geometry option is  not	speci‐
			   fied, uses default values.  The geometry option has
			   the format  [widthxlength][{+-}x{+-}y].   For  more
			   information about the screen coordinate system, see

       -p filename	   Specifies  that the filename be used as the profile
			   file.  The default is ~/.uam_profile.  The  profile
			   file	 specifies the customized UAM environment that
			   you want to use.

Help Menu
       The Help menu provides help on the UAM application.

X Defaults
       The  command  uses the values in the .Xdefaults file when you logged in
       and uses the appropriate resource specification values to customize the
       appearance  of the UAM window.  The format for a resource specification
       in the .Xdefaults file is:

		      [name*]resource:	value

       name	 Specifies the	application  name  or  the  name  string  that
		 restricts the resource assignment to that application or to a
		 component of an application.  If this argument is not	speci‐
		 fied,	the resource assignment is globally available to all X
		 applications.

       resource	 Specifies the resource.

       value	 Specifies the value that is to be assigned to the resource.

       Because each toolkit-based application can consist of a combination  of
       widgets	(for example, push buttons and a scroll bar), you can form the
       name string by adding widget class and name identifiers to the  string.
       For further information about adding class and name identifiers, see

       For the available application class identifier is Uam.

       For the available name identifiers are:

       UAM		   The application name.

       Each  specification included for the translations resource in the .Xde‐
       faults file modifies a key setting for the editor that uses.  For  more
       information  about key and mouse specifications in the .Xdefaults file,
       see
