NAME

newusers.pl - A perl script that compares a list of usernames and MD5 sums output by digestion.pl(1) to the passwd database and outputs a list of accounts that are in that list but not in the passwd database.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

hunter-seeker.pl [ -h ] [ -i [input file] ] [ -o [output file] ] [ -f [MD5 sum field in GECOS] ] [ -G [affected group] ]

DESCRIPTION

hunter-seeker.pl iterates through /etc/passwd comparing MD5 sums of users in the group specified as argument to -G to a list of MD5 sums as output by digestion.pl(8). It outputs a list of users that are in the input list but not in passwd(5). This list is suitable for processing with userneu(8).
-i [input file] Read input from input file or stdin if -.
-o [output file] Write output to output file or stdout if -.
-G [group] Iterate over all users whose primary group is group.
-a [file] Read a list of MD5 sums to be ignored from file. Even if these sums are not found in passwd(5), they are not written to the output list. This might be useful if you’d like to keep some old user accounts without MD5 sums in the GECOS field.
-f [MD5 sum field in GECOS] Specify the field in GECOS that contains the MD5 sum.
