Ok, so I tried to make a simple script to add users so I wouldn't have to type in groups/pw over and over again... the problem is that it's not behaving like it should =o.
[ ...8<... Removed a bunch of lines ...8<... ] IMHO, if you need to script something, use /bin/sh. It's the standard shell interpreter on all flavors of UNIX and Linux (except maybe MacOS X). All of the rc scripts are written with it. So why bother with another shell? Here's an interesting read on the topic: http://www.faqs.org/faqs/unix-faq/shell/csh-whynot/ BTW, Tom Christiansen who wrote this is co-author of "Programming Perl" from O'Reilly. So, Garret, if you need help with this, I have a /bin/sh version of the script you're trying to do. Just drop me a line and I'll send it to you. Just my two cents :) David -- David Robillard UNIX systems administrator & Oracle DBA CISSP, RHCE & Sun Certified Security Administrator Montreal: +1 514 966 0122 _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
