Several people have asked me for my adduser-script which I used when I
still had dusk up on the net. Well, these times have passed, but
finally I got my hands on dusk again and here is my adduser- and my

Please note that this has only been testet with perl4, no promises for
perl5 (I'm under AmigaOS right now, can't check :->).

Things you might want to change:

        $DEFAULT_GROUP="guest";         # What group people should get in
        $MIN_UID=1000;                  # Lowest possible uid
        $MAX_UID=9000;                  # Highest UID, <32765
        $HOMEBASE="/home/dusk";         # Where people's homes are

        $HOMEBASE="/home/dusk";         # Where people's homes are

There's also a usage-description at the head of each file, please
check this out. If you want to keep people's location in your
passwd-file rather than their email-address, just give it instead, as
this is just copied into the passwd's appropriate field. :)

Have fun!


P.S.: Almost forgot: if you want to provide your users with some
      startup-files (.cshrc, ...), copy them to /etc/skel.

P.S. #2: It's in right now,
         when I find some time I'll move it over to .../contrib.

P.S. #3: No warranty for anything. :)
