  Run-time variables

  See "man unlang" for more complete documentation on the run-time
variables.  This file is here only for historical purposes.

  The above variable expansions also support the following
meta-attributes.  These are not normal RADIUS attributes, but are
created by the server to be used like them, for ease of use.  They can
only be queried, and cannot be assigned.

	Packet-Type		RADIUS packet type (Access-Request, etc.)

	Packet-Src-IP-Address	IP address from which the packet was sent

	Packet-Dst-IP-Address	IP address to which the packet was sent
				This may be "", if the server
				was configured with "bind_address = *".

	Packet-Src-Port		UDP port from which the packet was sent

	Packet-Dst-Port		UDP port to which the packet was sent.

     %{config:section.subsection.item} Corresponding value in 'radiusd.conf'
                                       for the string value of that item.

  The %{config:...} variables should be used VERY carefully, as they
may leak secret information from your RADIUS server, if you use them
in reply attributes to the NAS!

DEFAULT  User-Name =~ "^([^@]+)@(.*)"
	 All-That-Matched = `%{0}`
	 Just-The-User-Name = `%{1}`
	 Just-The-Realm-Name = `%{2}`

  The variables are used in dynamically translated strings.  Most of
the configuration entries in radiusd.conf (and related files) will do
dynamic string translation.  To do the same dynamic translation in a
RADIUS attribute (when pulling it from a database, or "users" file),
you must put the string into an back-quoted string:

       Session-Timeout = `%{expr: 2 + 3}`

  To do the dynamic translation in the 'radiusd.conf' (or some other
configuration files), just use the variable as-is.  See 'radiusd.conf'
for examples.

  Attributes as environment variables in executed programs

  When calling an external program (e.g. from 'rlm_exec' module),
these variables can be passed on the command line to the program.
In addition, the server places all of the attributes in the RADIUS
request into environment variables for the external program. The
variables are renamed under the following rules:

  1.  All letters are made upper-case.

  2.  All hyphens '-' are turned into underscores '_'

so the attribute User-Name can be passed on the command line to the
program as %{User-Name}, or used inside the program as the environment
variable USER_NAME (or $USER_NAME for shell scripts).

  If you want to see the list of all of the variables, try adding a
line 'printenv > /tmp/exec-program-wait' to the script.  Then look in
the file for a complete list of variables.

  One-character variables

  The following one-character variables are also defined.  However, they
are duplicates of the previous general cases, and are only provided
for backwards compatibility.  They WILL BE removed in a future
release.  They also do NOT permit the use of conditional syntax
(':-'), as described above.
