        create-person-old [5] (( name   : HOLLERITH;
                                 passwd : HOLLERITH ))
                -> ( Pers-No );

This call requests that the server create a new person with the name and password given as arguments. To create a person the session may have to be logged in as a person with sufficient privileges, if the server is configured that way.

If the session was not logged in an automatic visible login to the new person will be performed.

The new person will be a member of exactly one conference: the associated mailbox. That membership will have priority 255 and (of course) position 0. All flags of the membership will be 0.

        =1 6

This example creates a new person named "LysKOM statistics Daemon" with the password "secret". The server has returned the person number six for the person.
