What is a foouser and a bargroup?

1 Answer

Foo and bar are phrases that get used in programing quite a bit as place holders (a.k.a metasyntactic variables). Depending on the context of where you read this, foouser and bargroup should be replaced with your actual user and group.

See Wikipedia for the history and etymology.
