+$Id$
+
+This is a help file for the pam_time module. It explains the need for
+pam_time and also the syntax of the /etc/security/time.conf file.
+[a lot of the syntax is freely adapted from the porttime file of the
+shadow suite.]
+
+1. Introduction
+===============
+
+It is desirable to restrict access to a system and or specific
+applications at various times of the day and on specific days or over
+various terminal lines.
+
+The pam_time module is intended to offer a configurable module that
+satisfies this purpose, within the context of Linux-PAM.
+
+2. the /etc/security/time.conf file
+===================================
+
+This file is the configuration script for defining time/port access
+control to the system/applications.
+
+Its syntax is described in the sample ./time.conf provided in this
+directory.
+
+unrecognised rules are ignored (but an error is logged to syslog(3))
