Debian Reference
Chapter 13 - Programming

Do not use "test" as the name of an executable test file. test is a shell built-in.

13.1 Where to start


Many long info documents can be obtained as paperbacks from GNU.

The next four sections contain sample scripts in different languages for creating a text file of account information to be added to /etc/passwd using a batch processor such as the newusers program. Each script requires as input a file with lines of the form first_name last_name password. (Actual user home directories will not be created via these scripts.)
