Sets Linux filesystems quotas from the command line

quotatool is a tool for manipulating filesystem quotas. Depending on the options given, it can set hard or soft limits on block and inode usage, set andreset grace periods, for both users and (if your system supports this) groups. The filesystem to set the quota on is given as the first (and only) non-option element, and it is either the block special file (i.e /dev/sda3) or the mount point (i.e. /home) for the filesystem.
