    Change Default GECOS Fields

    Hello all,

    I was wondering if there was a way to change the default GECOS fields on a user. Now, I don't mean change their name, number, shell, etc. What I mean is change the field-type/name itself.

    Like, for example, since I never use the "Work-Phone" field, could I say, rename it to something else, like "Address" ?

    Also, is it possible to add completely new field entries as well?

    All I could really find through searching is how to change the fields that are already set.

    So I'm guessing that's a no?

    This isn't a programming question, which is probably why it got ignored in this forum. I don't know of a forum on UF that would exactly fit this question. Security Discussions maybe?

    I'd probably ask Stack Overflow.

    Oh, my bad. I was creating a Perl script to edit user information, so I guess that's why I automatically thought to put this question under this particular thread.

    Stack Overflow it is! Thanks.
