Name
       edquota - edit user quotas

Syntax
       edquota [ -p proto-user ] users...

Description
       The  command  is	 a quota editor.  You can specify one or more users on
       the command line.  For each user, creates  a  temporary	file  with  an
       ASCII  representation  of  the current disc quotas for that user and an
       editor is then invoked on the file.  You can then  modify  the  quotas,
       add  new quotas, and so forth.  Upon leaving the editor, reads the tem‐
       porary file and modifies the binary quota files to reflect the  changes
       made.

       If  a valid quota file does not exist, refers the user to The user then
       has the option of either supplying the command which automatically cre‐
       ates the necessary quota file, or creating an empty quota file by vari‐
       ous other means.

       If the option is specified, duplicates for each user, the quotas of the
       prototypical  user  specified. This is the usual mechanism used to ini‐
       tialize quotas for groups of users.

       otherwise.
