-<p><tt class="COMMAND">finger</tt>(1) will retrieve information about the specified user.
-You give finger a username or an email address and it will try to contact the necessary
-server and retrieve the username, office, telephone number, and other pieces of
-information. Here is an example:</p>
-
-<table border="0" bgcolor="#E0E0E0" width="100%">
-<tr>
-<td>
-<pre class="SCREEN">
-<samp class="PROMPT">%</samp> <kbd class="USERINPUT">finger johnc@idsoftware.com</kbd>
-</pre>
-</td>
-</tr>
-</table>
-
-<p><tt class="COMMAND">finger</tt> can return the username, mail status, phone numbers,
-and files referred to as &#8220;dot plan&#8221; and &#8220;dot project&#8221;. Of course,
-the information returned varies with each <tt class="COMMAND">finger</tt> server. The one
-included with Slackware returns the following information by default:</p>
-
-<ul>
-<li>
-<p>Username</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>Room number</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>Home phone number</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>Work phone number</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>Login status</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>Email status</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>Contents of the <tt class="FILENAME">.plan</tt> file in the user's home directory</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>Contents of the <tt class="FILENAME">.project</tt> file in the user's home
-directory</p>
-</li>
-</ul>
-
-<p>The first four items can be set with the <tt class="COMMAND">chfn</tt> command. It
-stores those values in the <tt class="FILENAME">/etc/passwd</tt> file. To change the
-information in your <tt class="FILENAME">.plan</tt> or <tt class="FILENAME">.project</tt>
-file, just edit them with your favorite text editor. They must reside in your home
-directory and must be called <tt class="FILENAME">.plan</tt> and <tt
-class="FILENAME">.project</tt>.</p>
-
-<p>Many users <tt class="COMMAND">finger</tt> their own account from a remote machine to
-quickly see if they have new email. Or, you can see a user's plan or current project.</p>
-
-<p>Like many commands, <tt class="COMMAND">finger</tt> has options. Check the man page
-for more information on what special options you can use.</p>
