FORUM is a program for inter-terminal communication. To use
it, the user simply runs FORUM and then enters his or her name. From
then on, all lines typed by the user are sent to everyone else running
FORUM, prefixed by the user's name. If the first character is a slash
("/"), then the line is instead interpreted as a command as follows:
ACCESS* - change UFD protection of profile file to <755>.
AUTHOR - provide the name of the author of FORUM.
