+<item><tt>fieldsep=<it>separators</it></tt> -
+this option modifies the field separator character that
+<tt/pam_access/ will recognize when parsing the access configuration
+file. For example: <tt>fieldsep=|</tt> will cause the default `:'
+character to be treated as part of a field value and `|' becomes the
+field separator. Doing this is useful in conjuction with a system that
+wants to use pam_access with X based applications, since the
+<tt/PAM_TTY/ item is likely to be of the form "hostname:0" which
+includes a `:' character in its value.
