usermod.sam vs usermod

Hi all,

it may be a dumb question, but doesn't make sense to me. What is the difference between usermod.sam and usermod?

let's see here:

tractor[root]:/root:>/usr/sam/lbin/usermod.sam
User name must be specified
Usage: usermod.sam [-p <passwd> [-u <uid> [-o]] [-g <group> [-G <group>[,<group...> [-d <dir> [-m]] [-s <shell>] [-c <comment>] [-f <inactive>] [-e <expire>] [-l <new logname>] <login>
tractor[root]:/root:>/usr/sbin/usermod
User name must be specified
Usage: usermod [-u <uid> [-o]] [-g <group> [-G <group>[,<group...> [-d <dir> [-m]] [-s <shell>] [-c <comment>] [-f <inactive>] [-e <expire>] [-l <new logname>] <login>

 

but then:
tractor[root]:/root:>ll /usr/sam/lbin/usermod.sam
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root sys 17 Jan 15 2007 /usr/sam/lbin/usermod.sam -> /usr/sbin/usermod

 

is the only difference between them the possibility of adding an encrypted password? 

thanks

I believe so.
