from the rlm_expiration document - the document that explains how
the expiration code does things..

Expiration attribute format:

You can use Expiration := "23 Sep 2004" and the user will
no longer be able to connect at 00:00 (midnight) on September 23rd,
2004.  If you want a certain time (other than midnight) you can do
use  Expiration := "23 Sep 2004 12:00".
The nas will receive a Session-Timeout attribute calculated to kick
the user off when the Expiration time occurs.

Example entry (users files):

user1   Expiration := "23 Sep 2004"

please tell us how we can make this clearer
