qplm-- Quintus Prolog license manager
qplm -i SiteName
qplm -a Product Users [ Expiration ] Code
qplm -d User Product
qplm initializes and maintains
the license files for Quintus products.
A code is supplied for each Quintus product that is based on the name of the site or company name, product name, number of users and optionally an expiration date.
Users are distinguished as either occasional users, if they have used the product less than 5 times, or else regular users. When determining whether the number of users is within that allowed by the license, only regular users are counted.
Expiration dates are specified with the format YY-MM-DD.
To initialize the license file:
% qplm -i Hallatrow Designers Inc.
To add a 2 user license for Prolog that expires on 17 May 1994,
% qplm -a prolog/hppa/3.5 2 94-05-17 thiscodewontwork]
