Main Functions
. Lists the current users on the system, along with the
  location, program name, etc.  In this mode it functions like
  a personalized SYSTAT program.
. Searches for a specific user, displays the above
  information if they are logged in and additionally shows
  information about their mail, last login, and a personal
  message file they may supply.
. Functions as a DECnet server for both in-bound and
  out-bound links.  Remote users may Finger the local system,
  and local users can Finger other systems on the network.  If
  the network contains a VAX running VMS Finger V51.1.20 or
  later the local user can also Finger Bitnet or Internet
  hosts as well as terminal servers.
In a large network Finger can be an invaluable tool to
locate users, see if they received your mail, etc.
Release notes are distributed with each order.
Notes: Earlier version 9's of Operating System RSTS/E may work but are
not tested.
RSTS/E Finger will use services provided by DECmail-11 and DECnet/E,
they are not required for correct operation.
Restrictions: Operating System RSTS/E V9.6 or later is required due to
LAT supports.
