4.4.1 The Request

User request consists of the user passwd entry, the command line supplied to rush, and environment variables. The request is analyzed and can be eventually modified by rules in rush configuration file. Rules access parts of the request using variables.

There are four classes of variables. All of them share the same namespace and are accessed using the same syntax.
