Rewrite section on session timeout using TMOUT env. variable
Last modified: 2016-06-06 05:45:13 EDT
The method of installing screen to enforce session timeouts, though convenient, is not necessarily best-practice. A similar effect can be had with setting the bash or login shell TMOUT variable and setting the variable as read-only. E.g., readonly TMOUT in the system-wide bash profile.
Hello, I rewrited the section 4.2.4  to use the TMOUT variable and I consulted the solution with Martin Prpic. Thank you for reviewing.
Thanks Mirek. I only made some minor changes.
