LOGON(1)                                                 LOGON(1)

     NAME
          logon - log on to Inferno

     SYNOPSIS
          [ wm/wm ] wm/logon [ -l ] [ -n nsfile ] [ -u user ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Logon logs a user in to the Inferno environment.  It
          requires wm (1) to be started first.  If no user name is
          specified by the -u option, logon displays a login panel to
          prompt for one.  The user name must have a directory
          /usr/user, which will become the current directory.  (Other-
          wise, logon will display a diagnostic panel and prompt
          again.)  The user name is written to /dev/user (see
          cons(3)), which is the name presented on subsequent attaches
          to file servers.

          Normally, logon expects keyboard input to provide a name,
          but if the -l option is given, logon displays a list of the
          names in /usr, allowing one to be selected using a mouse or
          touch screen.

          Once the current directory has been set, logon creates a new
          name space for the user using the contents of nsfile
          (default: namespace), as described in namespace(6). It then
          starts toolbar(1) to provide the initial application envi-
          ronment.
