If you want to check the files of all the users who have their login
areas on the current host, you can use a wildcard directive
instead of a directory name. In this case the file action iterates over
all home directories physically on the current host. The home
directories are, of course, located by searching for files which match
i.e. the values which are specified in the
control part of the
program. For example the following line is a very useful service to
files: any:: home mode=o-w r=inf act=fixall
It ensures automatically that no user has files which can be written to by other arbitrary users.
As a corollary to this, you may write something like
any:: home/www mode=a+r fixall
to specify a special subdirectory of every users' home directory. This statement would check that all of the files in users' world wide web directories were readable for everyone.
