*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*
* WORFAUTH runs as a TODEVENT command.  The IBM product HMF/VM should
* work in place of TODEVENT, but I don't really know for sure.
*
*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*
* Installation instructions:
*
*   Make a disk for the WORF database.  It will contain the WORF's WORF
*   RULE and PRIVLIST files, and its own WORF GROUP file.  Give your
*   TODEVENT machine write access and your SFS server read access.
*
*   Put the following statements in the TODEVENT machine's PROFILE EXEC
*   (or do something equivalent):
*
*     /* Set the globalv variables telling where the WORF rule database
*        is kept.  Used by WORFAUTH TODEVENT command.
*     */
*     "GLOBALV SELECT WORF SET RULEUSER ASPIS"
*     "GLOBALV SELECT WORF SET RULEVDEV 202"
*
*     (In this example, the WORF database lives on disk APSIS 202).
*
*
*   Put WORFAUTH EXEC on a disk that the TODEVENT machine keeps
*   accessed.
*
*   Ensure the TODEVENT machine never has a disk accessed as Device
*   Number 123 or Filemode W when WORFAUTH gets invoked.  That's where
*   WORFAUTH accesses the rule disk.
*
*   Put WORFAUTH HELPCMS on a disk that users have access to.
*
*   Inform users of the TODEVENT userid.
*
*
*
WORFAUTH EXEC     * Run by TODEVENT - accesses rule disk, updates files
WORFAUTH HELPCMS  * Tells users what commands to send to TODEVENT machine
