Re: How are you creating accounts on RSTS

I couldn't remember how to use REACT either, and I was too lazy to read the
sources.  I spent a little time in HELP to refresh my teco memory and then

teco $acct.sys
i1,44,,1000,4,Ed Tecot

As for how my account was created; I believe that Jim created my account,
so perhaps he can enlighten us on how he did it without REACT.
