Graphically handles login and authentication
'wdm' combines the functions of a graphical display manager identifying and authenticating a user on a system with some of the functions of a session manager in selecting and starting a window manager. It can also optionally shutdown (reboot or halt) the system. Wdm is a modification of the X11 xdm package for graphically handling authentication and system login. Most of xdm has been preserved with the login interface based on a WINGs implementation using Tom Rothamel's "external greet" interface.
