newusers file format


Has anyone used the 'newusers' command to suck in a bunch of new users
and their passwords from a text file?

The users do not currently have accounts on the system, so I can't use

I built a new Debian box, and have all my users and passwords in a text
file. I want to add them in bulk, plus have the home directories
created, etc.

man newusers is absolutely no help whatsoever. I'm stuck on the input
file format.

Thanks much,
