Re: Design a script

Hi:

Sure. Send $$$.

It helps _you_ to try yourself and then ask when/where you are stuck!

Re: Design a script

I would be tempted to just use the passwd command.

But you can send me $$$, too! (Good idea, Jim)

Re: Design a script

You're probably right, Pete, but the wording looks suspiciously like an exam question to me. The examiner might not like the answer "Just use passwd"!

This "unixadmin" has been posting many of his work assignments to the HP Forums, expecting the folks here to perform his job functions on his behalf.
There's no place like 127.0.0.1

Re: Design a script

So you mean the name "unixadmin" is either a joke on us or wishful thinking on their part?

Wow! Just paint me gullible and naive - - NOT!

Re: Design a script

And his/her point assignment ratio is really poor as well:

I have assigned points to 10 of 102 responses to my questions.

Re: Design a script

Well, exams generally only have 100 points so it seems obvious that "unixadmin" can't hand them out too freely - there's just not enough to go around!

Re: Design a script

I didn't figure you were.

I was just trying to make the point (sic.) that overall his/her assignment ratio sucks.
