NAME


lnewusers - Create new user accounts

SYNOPSIS


lnewusers [OPTION]...

DESCRIPTION


Creates new user accounts using data read from standard input.

The input data consists of lines, each line has 7 colon-separated fields:

User name

Plaintext password

User ID
lnewusers refuses to create users with user ID 0 (the root user ID).

Group If this field is a valid group ID, it is interpreted as a group ID, otherwise as a
group name. If the field is empty, a group name equal to user name is used.

If the specified group does not exist, it is automatically created. If the group
is specified with a group ID, the created group has group name equal to the user
name.

GECOS The GECOS field is traditionally used to store user's real name and other
information.

Home directory
If this field is empty, a default specified by libuser configuration, or
/home/username if libuser configuration does not specify a default, is used.

Login shell
If this field is empty, a default specified by libuser configuration is used.

Errors in user specifications are reported and processing continues on the next line.

OPTIONS


-f, --file=file

-M, --nocreatehome
Don't create home directories.

-n, --nocreatemail

EXIT STATUS


The exit status is 0 on success, nonzero on fatal error. Errors in user specifications
are not reflected in the exit status.
