Re: Adding and removing a user automatically


	Let us see if I can code this directly in here. BTW, perl does
 not need a dependency if you can do with things in perl-base.

 partially tested code.

 mgroup=$(egrep "^$user:" /etc/passwd |  | cut -d: -f 4 )
 groups=$(egrep "$user" /etc/group  | cut -d: -f 3)

 for group in $mgroup $groups; do
    if [ "X$group" = "X$gid" ]; then
        echo "Found user $user with gid $gid"
        exit 0
 echo "Not found $user"

 Productivity = (Number of secretaries X Average typing speed) /
 (Number of Scientists).  Note that when the number of scientists is
 zero, productivity becomes infinite.  -- Robert Sommer
