       setquota	 is  a	command line quota editor.  The filesystem, user/group
       name and new quotas for this filesystem can be specified on the command
       line.  Note that if a number is given in the place of a user/group name
       it is threated as an UID/GID.

       -r     Edit also remote quota use rpc.rquotad on remote server  to  set
	      quota.  This  option  is available only if quota tools were com-
	      piled with enabled support for setting quotas over RPC.

       -F quotaformat
	      Perform setting for specified format (ie. don't  perform	format
	      autodetection).	Possible  format  names are: vfsold (version 1
	      quota), vfsv0 (version 2	quota),	 rpc  (quota  over  NFS),  xfs
	      (quota on XFS filesystem)

       -u     Set user quotas for named user. This is the default.

       -g     Set group quotas for named group.

       -x     Always  try  to  translate name to id, even if it is composed of
	      only digits.

       -p protoname
	      Use quota settings of user or group protoname to set  the	 quota
	      for the named user or group.

       -b     Read  information to set from stdin (input format is name block-
	      softlimit block-hardlimit inode-softlimit inode-hardlimit ).

       -t     Set grace times for users/groups. Times block-grace  and	inode-
	      grace are specified in seconds.

       -T     Alter   times   for  individual  user/group  when	 softlimit  is
	      enforced. Times block-grace and  inode-grace  are	 specified  in
	      seconds or can be string 'unset'.

       -a     Go  through  all filesystems with quota in /etc/mtab and perform

       To disable a quota, set the coresponding parameter to 0. To change quo-
       tas for several filesystems, invoke once for each filesystem.

       Only the super-user may edit quotas.

       aquota.user or aquota.group
			   quota file at the filesystem root (version 2 quota,
			   non-XFS filesystems)
       quota.user or quota.group
			   quota file at the filesystem root (version 1 quota,
			   non-XFS filesystems)
       /etc/mtab	   mounted filesystem table
