    Automate add user

    Hello all,

    I have a list of dozens of new users that I'd like to create on my Ubuntu Server running 10.04. I'm still a novice and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction for automating the process. I

    I was thinking along the lines of saving a list of users/usernames then doing the following:

    Code:
    cat list | while read name
    do
    adduser $name.....
    Or could I use expect?

    Thanks
    Cludgie

    Running adduser non-interactively: See a (somewhat terse) solution at http://askubuntu.com/questions/94060...-interactively
