Play management database
Design, build and document a system to manage restrictions on office computer games.
As a Junior C Programmer, I was asked by the System Administrator to write a tool to help him restrict employees from playing games on the company's Unix operating system all day.
The resulting program lets admins maintain a database of records which indicate when peope are restricted from playing games on the computer.
There were three types of restriction:
- A user, a terminal or a user/terminal combination
- A default restriction of 'none'
- A system-wide restriction which over-rides all restrictions: no one can play (for example, if a client visits) or anyone can play
I wrote the initial specification at the start of the project and the user manual for the administrator at the end.
