X-Clever-Slogan: Recycle or Die.

The next two postings are the code which I promised a few days
ago I would post.  There are two utilities.  chpasswd allows you
to change a group of passwords using a data file as input.  It
is really just a silly little example to how to use a collection
of password file routines I wrote.  newusers is much more amusing
and allows you to create a collection of users using something
like a password file as input.  It allocates the user and group
IDs and does other interesting stuff.  Neither is well documented,
in keeping with the USENET tradition of providing lots of code
and little documentation.

I'm going to ask that this code not be archived since I intend
to post this code on a semi-regular basis until the kinks are
all worked out.  I'd rather not have any confusion about what
is the current version.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State
