           edquota  is  a quota editor.  One or more users or groups may be speci-
           fied on the command line.  If  a  number  is  given  in  the  place  of
           user/group  name  it is treated as an UID/GID. For each user or group a
           temporary file is created with an ASCII representation of  the  current
           disk quotas for that user or group and an editor is then invoked on the
           file.  The quotas may then be modified, new quotas added, etc.  Setting
           a quota to zero indicates that no quota should be imposed.
           Block  usage  and  limits are reported and interpereted as multiples of
           kibibyte (1024 bytes) blocks by default. Symbols K, M, G, and T can  be
           appended  to  numeric value to express kibibytes, mebibytes, gibibytes,
           and tebibytes.
           Inode usage and limits are interpreted literally. Symbols k, m, g,  and
           t  can be appended to numeric value to express multiples of 10^3, 10^6,
           10^9, and 10^12 inodes.
           Users are permitted to exceed their soft limits for a grace period that
           may  be  specified  per filesystem.  Once the grace period has expired,
           the soft limit is enforced as a hard limit.
           The current usage information in the file  is  for  informational  pur-
           poses; only the hard and soft limits can be changed.
           Upon  leaving the editor, edquota reads the temporary file and modifies
           the binary quota files to reflect the changes made.
           The editor invoked is vi(1) unless either  the  EDITOR  or  the  VISUAL
           environment variable specifies otherwise.
           Only the super-user may edit quotas.


           -r, --remote
                  Edit  also  non-local  quota use rpc.rquotad on remote server to
                  set quota.  This option is available only if  quota  tools  were
                  compiled  with enabled support for setting quotas over RPC.  The
                  -n option is equivalent, and is maintained for backward compati-
           -m, --no-mixed-pathnames
                  Currently, pathnames of NFSv4 mountpoints are sent without lead-
                  Duplicate the quotas of the prototypical user specified for each
                  user specified.  This is the normal mechanism used to initialize
                  quotas for groups of users.
                  Always  try  to translate user / group name to uid / gid even if
                  the name is composed of digits only.
           -F, --format=format-name
                  Edit quota  for  specified  format  (ie.  don't  perform  format
                  autodetection).   Possible  format  names  are:  vfsold Original
                  quota format with 16-bit UIDs / GIDs, vfsv0  Quota  format  with
                  32-bit  UIDs  / GIDs, 64-bit space usage, 32-bit inode usage and
                  limits, vfsv1 Quota format with 64-bit quota limits  and  usage,
                  rpc (quota over NFS), xfs (quota on XFS filesystem)
           -f, --filesystem filesystem
                  Perform  specified operations only for given filesystem (default
                  is to perform operations for all filesystems with quota).
           -t, --edit-period
                  Edit the soft time limits for each  filesystem.   In  old  quota
                  format  if  the time limits are zero, the default time limits in
                  <linux/quota.h> are used. In new quota format time  limits  must
                  be  specified  (there  is  no default value set in kernel). Time
                  units of 'seconds', 'minutes', 'hours', and  'days'  are  under-
                  stood.  Time  limits  are  printed in the greatest possible time
                  unit such that the value is greater than or equal to one.
           -T, --edit-times
                  Edit time for the user/group when softlimit is enforced.  Possi-
                  ble values are 'unset' or number and unit. Units are the same as
                  in -t option.
