NOTES _____
When a file is created (see MFILE), a password is assigned to
it ("DEFAULT" if none is specified), as well as a <list>
comprised of all FRESS commands.
The password currently in effect is either the password
specified when the file was last accessed with GFILE, or the
password last specified with the CPASSWORD command, whichever
came last.
Any number of passwords may be added to a file to narrow the
range of commands available to restricted users.
RESTRICTIONS ____________
New passwords must be no more than seven alphanumeric
characters.
EXAMPLES ________
ap/default/<allowable commands>
The file may now be accessed in the future with the system
password "DEFAULT," but only the execution of those commands
specified in <allowable commands> will be allowed.
ap/pass/*-i d
A GFILE issued with the password "pass," would not allow
insertions (i) or deletions (d).
MESSAGES ________
INVALID FUNCTION
PASSWORD ALREADY EXISTS
RELATED COMMANDS ________________
CPASSWORD, DPASSWORD, GFILE, MFILE
