Scripts to automate the maintenance of accounts
is a collection of Perl scripts to automate maintenance of the user database on Linux and FreeBSD. Originally it was developed for FreeBSD, but it should work on Linux as well. These scripts compare the passwd database to the current list of employees/students/etc. which has to be supplied in a suitable format. This package was designed to work together with userneu.pl sysutils/userneu/ and contains no facilities to do the actual account creation work, instead it outputs a list suitable for processing with userneu. Stale accounts can be deleted using the reaper.pl script.
These scripts are experimental but they should work ok. Please report bugs to me if you find them.
