Unix and Oracle Passwords

Is it possible to modify users passwords via a script?

What I would like to do is somehow sync up Oracle and Unix passwords. I was thinking that when users change their password in Oracle, a Unix script could be called to also modify their Unix passwords.
There might be better ways to accomplish this so I am open to any suggestions.

Thanks.
