       edquota - edit user quotas

       edquota	[  -p  protoname ] [ -u | -g ] [ -rm ] [ -F format-name ] [ -f
       filesystem ] username...

       edquota [ -u | -g ] [ -F format-name ] [ -f filesystem ] -t

       edquota [ -u | -g ] [ -F format-name ] [ -f filesystem ] -T  username |

       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‐
	      ing slash in the path.  rpc.rquotad uses this to recognize NFSv4
	      mounts  and properly prepend pseudoroot of NFS filesystem to the
	      path. If you specify this	 option,  setquota  will  always  send
	      paths  with a trailing slash. This can be useful for legacy rea‐
	      sons but be aware that quota over RPC will stop working  if  you
	      are using new rpc.rquotad.

       -u, --user
	      Edit the user quota. This is the default.

       -g, --group
	      Edit the group quota.

       -p, --prototype=protoname
	      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.

       aquota.user or aquota.group
			   quota file at the filesystem root (version 2 quota,
			   non-XFS filesystems)
       quota.user or quota.group
			   quota file at the filesystem root (version 1 quota,
			   non-XFS filesystems)
       /etc/mtab	   mounted filesystems table

       quota(1), vi(1), quotactl(2), quotacheck(8),  quotaon(8),  repquota(8),
