+\fBfield < number\fR
+Field has a value numerically less than number.
+.TP
+\fBfield <= number\fR
+Field has a value numerically less than or equal to number.
+.TP
+\fBfield eq number\fR
+Field has a value numerically less equal to number.
+.TP
+\fBfield >= number\fR
+Field has a value numerically greater than or equal to number.
+.TP
+\fBfield > number\fR
+Field has a value numerically greater than number.
+.TP
+\fBfield ne number\fR
+Field has a value numerically different from number.

+\fBfield = string\fR
+Field exactly matches the given string.

+.TP
+PAM_SUCCESS

+To emulate the behaviour of

+Given that the type matches, only loads the othermodule rule if the UID is over 500. Adjust the number after default to skip several rules.
+.sp
