NAME

holidays - prime/nonprime table for the accounting system  

SYNOPSIS

/etc/acct/holidays

 

DESCRIPTION

The /etc/acct/holidays file specifies prime time hours and holidays. Holidays and weekends are considered non-prime time hours.

/etc/acct/holidays is used by the accounting system.

All lines beginning with an * are comments.

The /etc/acct/holidays file consists of two sections. The first non-comment line defines the current year and the start time of prime and non-prime time hours, in the form of:

current_year prime_start non_prime_start

Specify prime_start and non_prime_start times in the range of 0000 to 2400.

The remaining non-comment lines define the holidays in the form of:

month/day company_holiday

Of these two fields, only the month/day is actually used by the accounting system programs.

The /etc/acct/holidays file must be updated every year.
