CONTROL(8)                                                          CONTROL(8)



NAME
       control - control installed system facilities

SYNOPSIS
       control [ FACILITY [help|list|status|summary|STATUS] ]

DESCRIPTION
       control  provides  a  common  interface  to register and control system
       facilities.

       This is intended primarily for facilities that can potentially be  dan
       gerous to system security, to let you enable, disable, or configure the
       facility independently from package installation.

       When run with no arguments, control  lists  all  available  facilities,
       their current status, and their supported settings.

       When  a FACILITY name is specified, control may print facility summary,
       list its supported settings or print short help text for  them,  report
       its current status (default action), or switch it to a new STATUS.

FILES
       /etc/control.d/facilities/ - installed system facilities' control
           scripts to be invoked by control
       /etc/control.d/functions - common shell functions used by the above
           scripts

HISTORY
       control first appeared in Openwall GNU/*/Linux 0.1.
