# Description

The account name as perceived by commands such as WHO or conversions such as U50BB will normally be returned as the login name of the user (LOGNAME variable). However, if it is desired that users login with personal usernames but execute as if they were all on the same account, this variable may be set to override their username. The account name will be returned as whatever this environment variable is set to.

# Values
