Can someone explain to me (without snooping about their source code)
what the new fields in the System V Release 4 /etc/shadow file are
for?  Four new fields were added since SVR3 and I don't have the
structure member names or their functions.

Please don't look at your source code to tell me this info - I need
the information to be "clean".  No verbatim copies from manuals
either.  As reward your name will appear in the credits the next
time I repost the shadow-login sources.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State
